Editorial Reviews

Review

This newest edition has been greatly expanded and modified with over 5,000 new terms suggested by individuals who work with special collections. It provides a practical, specific framework for the description of objects by grouping terms hierarchically according to function. . . . Although it is not possible to account for every situation faced by collections, this listing covers most occurrences and would serve as an excellent starting point. (American Reference Books Annual, May 2010)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We were using the first edition of this book and what a welcome change this one is. We haven't been using it long but we have managed to find a category for every item we have accessioned to date unlike the older one that was too general in many cases.

The book is everything the museum wanted to help us inventory and record the many items we have. The book begins by telling you what to look for and how to use it in easy to understand language. The helps are illustrated with examples. The majority of the book is the tool. Only a small proportion is introductory.

I would recommend this to anyone.
