This manual for Library Science students at Ball State University
represents an.evolutionary process beginning with a work produced by the
Library Staff in 1945. A major revision was made in 1958, which this author
revised and rewrote in 1966. The publication of the Anial-American Rulee
necessitated a revision the following year. Meanwhile,7t-He scope ortg
Library Science program at Ball State has enlarged from its initial purpose
of preparing school librarians to its present graduate program in the areas
of school, public, and acadenic librarianship, making a revision necessary in
1969. The 1972 edition has undergone extensive rewriting throughout, and in
response to current developments in library collection's, has greater coverage
of multi-media materials.
The purpose of this manual is to present concisely methods and card forme
used in establishing bibliographic controls over a library collection. Generous
use is made of examples to aid the rtudent in understanding and practicing the
Anglo- American Catalo ging Rules. It is expected that this manual be used in
conjunction with a wide eelection of writings on cataloging.. Although the sample
cards used as illustrations of cataloging practice make use of classification
numbers from the abridged edition of the Dewy Decimal Classification, the manual
makes nc effort to ;Aesent any particular system of claZITIMMTSimilarly,
no effort Is mide to set forth the principles of subject cataloging. Sample
cards, however, use subjects from the ninth edition of Sears List of Sdbect

The card catalog, as we know it, evolved from the earliest printed
book catalogs through the experimental use of paper slips. and various sized
cards to the standardized form, we know today.
Since the card catalog is made up of an orderly arrangement of catalog
cards, Our purpose will be to equip the user of this manual with the techniques
for preparing the various kinds of entries appearing in the catalog.
The standard size of cards used for building the catalog is 7.5 x 12.5 cm.,
or approXimately 3 x 5 inches. To contribute to ease of interpretation, standard
items of information are expressed in a specified way and placed-on the card in
a definite pattern. If the cards are typed, a definite set of rules is necessary
to achieve a consistent form. Although there is likely to be variation in the
practices of different libraries,' there should be adherence to a single-fork in
a given library. It follows then'that the card style offered in this manual
may differ from practice in some libraries, but it is believed that accepting
the suggestions offered-here will result in a neat, readily understood form.
Economy of effort and ease of production have been guideposts in determining
the style.
The entry, personal or otherwise, is placed at first indention. The title
begins on the next line at second indention. The remainder of the body of the
card follows the title with each new line returning to the first indention
thus producing a paragraph-like appearance.
The collation begins on the next line following the body of the card, at
second indention. If there is a series note, it follows three typewriter
spaces after the collation. Other notes begin at second indention, double-
spaced below the collation.

An entry on a catalog card is the word or phrase at the head of the card
under which tne card is filed. There maybe author entries, title entries,
subject entries, series entries, illustrator entries, editor entries, and so
on. The main entry foi any item is the name indicating primary responsibility
for the content of the olrk, and the catalog card headed with this entry is
called the main entry card. All other entries for a given item are known as
added entries end they head added entry cards.
The selection of the main entry, for any library material is the first
work of the cataloger. The basis for the Cataloging of any book is its title
psge. Most frequently the nein entry will be the -name of a person and would
be spoken of as a PERSONAL AUTHOR. Because of the volume of materials being
processed and the difficulty of locating information about the authors, it
has become increasingly conmon to use the author's name as it appears on the
title page as the entry form. The cataloger will, however, attenpt to determine
the accepted form of the author's name, if it has already been established.
On the occasions when authorship cannot be ascribed to a single individual,
it is the responsibility of the cataloger to determine the form of the main
entry, using the rules set forth in the Anglo-AmeriCan-Cataloging Roles.
Works resulting from the collaboration of tiro or three individuals are
usually enterei under the first person named on the title page.
Works adapted from earlier works either by alteration of vocabulary or
abridgment of text may be entered finder the original author or the adapter,
depending on the extent of original work done by the adapter. If there is a
change of literary form the entry is under the person or persons responsible
for the new work.
Works of a variety of authors assembled and issued under editorial
supervision are commonly entered under the name of the editor, or editors,
if there are three or fewer.
If the work is the publication of a group of individuals acting as a
unit, the entry becomes the name of the group, and is known as a CORPORATE
In some instances, such as the Bible and anonymous classics, the authorship
of the material has been obscured by time and circumstances. For these a
standardized form of the title has been generally accepted as the entry. It
is called a UNIFORM TITLE.
A/work having so many contributors that responsibility cannot be assigned
to anlindividual:'is entered under TITLE if no editor is named on the title page.
Works' having many contributors, and having an editor named on the title page
may ,also be entered under title, if the publisher is named in the title. It' the
title of the work is to be the entry, the main entry card is prepared using
hanging indention form.
The entry for a person usually consists of his full name followed by
his 'Art", end death dates, if available.' If the author's full name is not
given on the title page of the book, the cataloger establishes the accepted
form by searching in bibliographical or biographical sources such as the
NsAonal Union .(221112g, Who's Who, or a stsnlard encyclopedia. A personal name
used for ar-7.7Tdedtry ITTOi1710 in the same way as if it were being used for
* main er.!Ty. To maintain consistency in the card catalog, all entries should
be checked nainst those alreat filed to assure accuracy and the same degree
of fullness.
The author's name, surname first, is placed at the head of the main
entry card, beginning at first/indention. If the entry extends beyond the
first line, it continues on the net line beginning atthird.indention.
Follow the surname and the forename with commas before, adding the author's
birth and death dates. Close a completed author entry with a period. For
authoritative treatment of rules for' determining the form of a person's name

Generally the entry for a married woman is under her latest name, that is,
her husband's surname, her cwn forename, ar names, and her maiden name. In the
past the maiden name was inciceed in parentheses. Many of these entries will be
found in library catalogs., The designation Mrs. is'not used. Cross references
should be made from any other forms of name Erwhich the author is known. Women
authors, who after marriage write under their maiden names, may continue to be
entered under their maiden names.

In many parts of the world the surname may be preceded by a prefix. In
general, in non-English speaking countries entry is under the surnameitself.
In English speaking countries the prefix is considered as integral part of the
surname. Thus, Anglicized surnames beginning with d', de, von, or van are
entered under the prefix, with cross references be au wan other parts
of the name to the form accepted as the entry.

Authors sometimes write under assumed names known as pseudonyms. When
the real name is known, it is usually used for the entry on the catalog card,
even though the pseudonymous name is used on the title page of the book. If
the real name cannot be found, use the pseudonym as the entry.
Occasionally an author's identity is not known until a great amount of
material has been published under a pseudonym. In such a case, the assumed
name may continue to be used as the accepted entry.

Collections of writings by various authors may be assembled and issued
as a single work by an editor or compiler. Since this person is chiefly
responsible for the finished work, his name is used as the main entry on the
catalog card. The editor in this primary relationship to the book should
not be confused with the function of editor who criticizes or explains the
work of a single author. In the latter case the editor's relationship to
the book is of secondary importance, and his name becomes an added entry,
while the name of the original author is retained as the main entry.
When the name of the ,editor is to be used as the main- entry, the form
of name to be-used is established in the same way as if he were the author.
Follow the editor's name and dates, if they are known, with a comma before
adding the abbreviated designation ed. or cm.,as the case may be.

A group of individuals acting together as a unit is known as a corporate
body. The publications of such a body are entered under the name of the
organization. Entries of this type are called corporate authors. In addition
to societies, religious groups, foundations, privately operated cultural
establishments and business corporations, this type of entry also applies
to all levels of governments and thus by extension to institutions of various
sorts which are government-affiliated. The form of the entry is most often
based on the actual name of the organization as determined it its charter,
constitution, or legislative authorization. Cross references should be made
whenever necessary to aid the catalog user in finding the.official entry.
Some typical entries are:
American Society for Microbiology. Sub-Committee on Numerical Taxonow.
Methodist Church (United States) Dept. of Research and Survey.
Rockefeller Foundation.
Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill.
Conference on Chemical and Biological Warfare, London, 1968.

The title of a work may be used as its entry when too many individuals are
responsible for its content to warrant ascribing authorship to an individual,
and when no editor is named on the title page. If the publisher's name appears
in the title, enter under title. Encyclopedias and many dictionaries may be
examples of this type of publication. Repeated changes of editors and compilers
in different editions of works normally enured under editor or compiler make
it advisable to enter such publications under title. Occasionally a work is
issued with no indication of the author's identity; it most be entered under
its title.
Serial publications, which include periodicals, directories, biographical
dictionaries, and almanacs, are also entered under title unless the title
includes the name of the corporate body responsible for the publication. Serials
having titl's that require the name of the sponsoring body for identification
are entered under their corporate author.
If the title is selected as the main entry a special card form is used.
It is known as hanging indention. The title °tarts at first indention and
continues on subsequent lines at se -'14 indention to the close of the body of
the card. The collation and remainder of the card receive the usual treatment.
No title added entry is made since the work is entered under its title.
An explanation of circumstances warranting entry under title may be found
in Ask-American Catalo am Rules, p. 1718.

After the main entry for a work has been determined, the cataloger proceeds
with setting down the body of the card. The title page serves as the basis in
supplying the information. Essential items to be transcribed are the full title,
and the imprint. Other items may be included depending on the nature of the
book and the text of the title page. These may include (1) the author's name,
if the title page form differs from the form selected for the main entry (2) the
names of joint authors (3) the names of editors, compilers, or illustrators and
(4) the edition statement. Additional, but irrelevant, information on the title
page is emitted. In general, the punctuation of the title page is used unless
the cataloger decides different or additional punctuation will increase clarity
of meaning. The wording and spelling of the title page are followed exactly.
Initial articles are not omitted. If an error of omission occurs on the title
page, correction may be made by supplying a missing letter or letters within
brackets if only,a single set of brackets is needed. To correct inaccuracies
the title rage form nay be copied and followed by "sic" or "i.e." in brackets
with the corrected form. If the first vord of the title is the possessive
form of tYe author's name as it appears in the entry, it is omitted.
Books written in foreign languages receive the same treatment as works in
English, with the title page being transcribed in the language in which it is
written and following the form of that language. For example, in German all
nouns are capitalized. No translation is made on the card. If the title page
is in more than one language, including English, the title is transcribed in
the language appearing first, followed by the title in English. The inclusion
of the title transcription in other languages will depend on the judgment of the
Non-serial works appearing in several volumes are ordinarily cataloged using
the title page of the first volume as the source of information for the catalog
Works having more than one title page are cataloged from the most appropriate
page. Suitability for cataloging purposes ii determined by such considerations as
(1) amount of necessary information offered (2) location of the title page, the
one in the traditional position being preferred (3) recency of date on the title

Information not appearing on the title page, but needed to complete the
body of the card, maybe obtained from elsewhere in the volume. It then is
enclosed in brackets.

Additional descriptive comments that indicate by whom a book is edited,
compiled, translated, or illustrated follow immediately after the title or
explanatory subtitle if the author's name is not required to appear in the body
of the card. For complicated expressions, close the title with a period and
start a new statement copying the descriptive comments. Some of these descriptive
comments may be abbreviated even though they are written out in the book. A
variety of terms may be used to show that there are illustrations, as: pictures

Materials appearing in form or text different from their original
publication may indicate this relationship on the title page. Typical
situations are abridgement of the text, use of a vocabulary more familiar
to the reader, or a complete change in form, such as the dramatisation of
a work. The choice of main entry for such a work depends on the amount
of original work done by the person making the adaptation. Such a statement
should be transcribed in the body of the card, using the language of the
title page.

When two or more persons are responsible for a work, the one whose name
appears first on the title page is used as the main entry and all others are
called joint authors. If there are only two authors their names are set
down as they appear on the title page immediately following the title or sub-
title. Credit is usually given to all authors if there are three or fewer.
If there are more, use only the first one listed and substitute 'and others3

When authors change, enlarge, or revise books but retait the original
title, the edition is usually indicated on the title page. Each revision or
edition is cataloged as a separate book. The position of the edition statement
on the title page may vary, but on the catalog card it is always placed
immediately preceding the imprint. It is a new statement and forms a unit.
The wording may vary. Some examples of abbreviations approved for use on
catalog cards are: New ed.; Completely rev.; Rev. and eni.; 2d ed.; 3d ed.;
5th ed.; etc. If the edition statement is secured from elsewhere than the
title page it is enclosed in brackets.

The term imprint as used by catalogers includes the place of publication,
the name of the publisher and the date of publication. The imprint begins a
new statement and is preceded by three spaces. If more than one place of
publication appears, record in the imprint the first place mentioned, unless
another is indicated by typography as the actual place of issue. The place
is followed by the name of the publisher. All important words in the name of
a publisher are capitalized.
If the name of more than one domestic publisher is given on the title page,
use only the first one and the corresponding place. If both a foreign and
domestic publisher are given, use only the American one if it appears first. Other-
wise, use both the foreign and the domestic imprints, separated by a semicolon.
If the name of a pullishinz firm and a division of the firm are both given, omit
the firm's name if the divIt,ion is well known. For example, if Whittlesey House
of the McGraw-Hill Pullishing Co. appears on the title page, use only Whittlesey
The name of the publisher is shortened and abbreviated as much as possible
without confusing its identification. Omit such phrases as, published lob

Standard practice dictates that the imprint date on the title page of
a work i3 always used on the catalog card. This date indicates the year the
work was issued, whereas the copyright date (usually found on the verso of
the title page) shows the date the copyright for the material was granted
by the Library of Congress. Since works having the same copyright date may
have been printed at different times) the printing date is not a reliable
source for determining the age of the material. If printing date and copy-
right date are identical, use only the printing date. If no copyright date
is available and there are several printing dates, use the latest printing
date. Enclose in brackets any date not found on the title page. Thus the
imprint will probably consist of the printing date and the copyright date,
for example: 196h V9573
If more than one copyright date is offered, select only the latest for
use on the catalog card. The fact of copyright is shown by placing the letter
c preceding the date. If the copyright date is not given on the title page,

If nc date is given, the letters 0.d., meaning no date are enclosed in brackets.
The 1Nprint date of a set e.books in its simplest form is represented by
giving the date span from the earliest to the latest issued.
Some libraries, in an effort at simplification, adopt a policy of using
the copyright date whenever it is available and using the printing date only
if it is the same as the copyright date, or, if no copyright date appears on
the work. For libraries with many duplicate copies this is sound practice.

Since the user of any library material may be concerned with the length
of the publication, such information is included on the catalog card. In
many cases the inclusion of illustrations may be of importance. The height
of the book may affect its location in specially adapted shelving. The term
collation is used to mean the physical description of a work in terms of
length, illustrations, and size. The collation will consist of informai;ion
concerning number of pages, or volumes,. in a work, the illustration statement
and the height of the book in centimeters.
The paging is indicated by recording the number on the last numbered
page. If the work contains more than Pe numbered section, the last numbered
page of each important section will be ecorded as the collation. If there are
many separately paged sections record lv.(various pagings). If the pages are
unnumbered, count the pages, beginning with the first page having to do with
the text and continuing to the end of the text. If the work contains fewer than
100 pages, record this number enclosed in brackets as the paging of the book.
For longer unpaged works record lv.(unpaged) as the collation. For works
containing more than one Ylune, use the number of volumes as the collation.
If the work is continuously paged, the total number of pages, inclosed in
parentheses, follows the volume statement.
The illustration statement nay use the abbreviation illus. to include
all types of illustrations. When certain types of illusta7gis seem parti-
cularly important they may be mentioned in alphabetical order after the term
illus., using the following terms: charts, facsimiles, forms, genealogical
TNUTE, maps, music, plates, portraits. Illustrations qualifying as plates
might be so described if {hey were of assorted types. To be counted as plates
an illustration must two of the following three requirements:
(1) not be included in the paging of the volume
(2) be printed on only one side of the paper
(3) be on a different kind of paper from that used for printing the text
The qualifying abbreviations col. and part col. may be used to indicate the
presence of colored inustratirririaterlia7 S3 typewriter spaces are used to
separate the illustration statement from the paging statement, and the size
from the illustration statement.

Additional information describing the item being cataloged, but not
appropriately included in the body of the card, may be added in notes. Such
notes may show that the work belongs to a series of similar works, that
bibliographies on the subject of the book are included, and that related
documents or other special features are present. The contents note listing
the items contained in a collection of plays or short stories is of great aid
in locating a work too slight to be published alone. Notes appear on catalog
cards in a specified order:
(1) series note, immediately following the size statement in the collation
(2) notes relating to bibliographic description
(3) notes relating to bibliographic history
(h) notes relating to content of the work
A series is composed of a number of works having same relationship to
each other and issued by the same publisher usually in similar format. The
series usually has a short title, such as Landmark books, Portrait of the
nation series, Chronicles of America, or Rivers of America, to mention a few.
The word series need not be a part of the series title. A series may have an
aPthor, ass gTT as a title, as in the case of serial publications of corporate
bodies. The name of the series may appear on the title page, half-title pate,
or on cover of the book. Books belonging to a pliblisherls series such as
the Beacon Hill bookshelf or Macmillan ocket classics have in common only
their appearance. This is 14;77171Fan. 7erliseaving a subject relationship.
The series title is recorded on the catalog card folloWing the collation.
The cataloger leaves three spaces and copies the series title and volume number,
enclosing it in parentheses. If the note extends beyond one line, the succeeding
line continues at first. indentioq. The name of the editor of the serier: is not
included as a part of the series no4o. Capitalization of the series title
follows the rules for recording other titles.

The cataloger is responsible for deciding what information in addition
to that in the body of the card needs to be recorded in notes. Judgment as
to what is important will be guided by the type of material, the size of the
library, and the needs of the library's users. Such items as the inclusion
of the U.S. Constitution in a history of the United States, or an important
glossary of terms in a scientific work might be brought out in a note.
Variations in the publisher of the volumes in a set would certainly be indicated
in a note.

Except for the first or only series note on a catalog card, other notes
begin at second indention, that is, one double spaced line below tha close
of the collation, or the series note. If it extends to the succeeding line,
continue at first indention.
Each successive note begins on the line immediately below the last,
starting at second indention. One of the most frequently used notes indicates
the presence of bibliographies. The form Includes bibliography is generally
used to indicate that there is one bibliography, or that there may be several
bibliographies scattered through the book. It is unnecessary to show the
exact paging or the exact title of the bibliography unless the length of the

124. Note showing
work contains
When books and other materials contain a variety of parts it is sometimes
useful to make a note giving the contents. Appropriate materials for using
contents notes are volumes containing short stories, plays and essays. In a
set of books the title page of each volume may indicate that it covers a definite
phase of a sUb;:ect or a span of time. Contents notes are not made for volumes
of poetry or wc,ks on a single broad subject by one author.
The contents note is always the last note on a catalog card. Listing
is done in paragraph form to save space. The word Contents begins at second
indention and the succeeding lines begin at first. indention.
The source of information recorded in a contents note may be the title
page, table of contents, or headings introduning the various components to be
recrded. Initials are used to represent the authors' given names. Items are
separated by a period, followed by a dash and one space, before recording the
next item. If the wort 12z must be supplied to complete the authorship state-
ment in a contents note, it is not necessary to enclose it in brackets.
If the note is too long to be concluded on one card the listing is stopped
abme the hole, leaving space tc type (Continued on next card) and a second (or
eersnsion) card carrier; o' vith the transcription. The heading of the second
card consists of the call -limber, the author, title, and imprint date, followed
by the designation (Card 2). After leaving a blank line below this heading,
the cataloger continnes typing t'ne material to appear on the card.
To save time, when the ecntents note is long, the cataloger may prefer tc
Give the canplete contents on only the main entry and shelf card and to use

replaced with the directive Fr.r contents, see main entry.

The catalog card headed with the entry denoting chief responsibility for
the content of the work is called the main entry card. All other entries for
the work made by putting additional headings above the material on the main
entry card are called added entries.
The purpose of making added entries is to aid the user of the catalog
imfinding the material for which he may be searching by providing additional
points of access. To achieve this end, therefore, added entries may be made
for the titles of the materials; the subjects with which materials deal; and
for the names of illustrators, translators, joint authors, joint compilers and
editors that have a secondary relationship with the work.
The added entry heading is placed in the space above the main entry,
beginning at second indention. If more than one line is needed for the entry,
continue it on the next line at third indention.
The usual practice is to make title cards for all books of fiction and
non-fiction books which have distinctive titles. When alternative titles exist,
added entries are made for both. Title added entries are not usually made for
titles beginning with such common phrases as The life of, The history of, or
An introduction to. Subject added entries airrhOriFtTo repreiier=u75 works
ade771757Trtle added entries are not usually made for biographies beginning
with the biographee's first name. Subject added entries are always made for
the person under consideration: in a biography.
However, some libraries have a divided catalog with subject cards in a
separate alphabetical arrangerient. In such a case each work should have a
card made for i ± and riled in the author/title alphabet.

In orderThiriTrof the editions of such a work may file togetner, a common
practice is to make the title card for a standardized form of the title, and
not for the varying titles. The same principle may be applied to any standard
work that is published under many slightly varying titles. Such a title entry
should be traced using the word Title followed by a colon and the actual wording
of the chosen title.

From the standpoint of many users of the library, the subjsct added entry
for a work is possibly the most important added entry. Sears List of Subject
Headings for Small Libraries is the prime source for deaRSIEEEhrform o
the subject halWinFICTiool libraries. For new subjects too recent to appear
in the Sears list the Readers Guide to Periodical Literature is helpful. A
comprehensive source fOrTilie7iniariee is StiEject Headings Used in the
Dictionary Catalogues of the Library of comes!.
After a subject heading is selected for a work, it is typed in the space
above the main entry beginning at second indention. It may be typed in black
capital lette s, or in red using upper and lower case letters. In a new library
the cataloger has an opportunity to make a choice as to form. In an established
library it is probably advisable to continue the form already in use. If the
form using upper and lower ca,: red letters is chosen, capitals should be used
for the first word of the heading, the first word of a subeivision of the rabject,
a qualifying word in parentheses, and proper nouns and adje:tives. Use no mark
of punctuation at the end of a subject heading. Within the heading use a comma
to separate the parts of an inverted heading. Separate the subdivisions of a
subject heading by a space, a dash, and a space, as AMER/CAN POETRY - COLLECTIONS.
Form of subject headings vary. They may be a single word as BASEBALL or
a phrase, as BIBLE AS LITEPATURE; an adjective followed by a noun, as PUBLIC
EDUCATION, ELEMENTARY; a subject followed by a qualifying phrase in parentheses,
as DISCOVERIES (IN GEOGRAPHY); or a subdivided heading as U,S. - HISTORY - CIVIL

When a book has two or more authors, the one whose name appears first on
the title-page is used as the main entry. All other authors are known as joint
authors. To make a joint author added entry, type the name of the joint author
in the space above the main entry beginning at second indention. The joint
author's name is established in the same way as if he were a main entry.' If
the r!oint author should already be entered in the catalog, the new entry is
identical in form with that already in the catalog. The designation
author is added to the name following a comma and one space. Close the joint
author heading with a period.

In almost every library are found anonymous classical, which are old
writings of acknowledged excellence whose authors are unknown. ftemples of
such writings are the epic Beowulf, national folk tales, and Arabian Nights.
These have been published in many languages and versions by eiii756lishers
under a variety of titles. For example, Arabianft*Lhas been published
also with the English titles Tales fram the Arabic, The Thousand and One Nights,
Arabian Nights Entertainments, and others, not to mention many viFirons in other
languages with other titles.
Books containing the sacred writings of any religion maybe classics
but are not necessarily anonymoue, because the authorship of at least parts
of them are known. They are, however, handled in the same way as other classics
of unknown origin.
In order that the main entries for all versions of an anonymous classic
or a sacred writing, may be the sane, a short title, usually in the English
language, has been established for use as the slain entry. This title brings
the different versions and editions of a work together in the catalog under a
uniform main entry, regardless of individual title.
The following is a list of titles which have been established for use as
entries f- certain well-known anonymous classics and sacred writings:
Arabian nights; Beowulf; Bible; Mabinogion; Mother Goose; Nibelungenlied;
Reynard the fox; Chanson de Roland. In libraries for children and young people
it might be advisable to use Em of Roland instead of the French form of the
name used in scholarly bibliographies.
Enter an anonymous classic or sacred writing under the established uniform
title, putting that title in the entry position on the carddend closing it with a
period. Complete the unit card following the customary form. Trace for, and make
the necessary added entry cards. Should the title of the book be the same as the
established title, no title added entry card is needed. 0

Library materials frequently contain separate parts or sections that have
previously been published independently. One author or publisher may be
responsible for all of the parts, or different individuals may be responsible
for the separate parts. Entries made for each of the separate sections, whether
they be stories, plays, essays, reports, or biographical sketches are known as
analytics. There may be author analytics, subject analytical or title analytics.
Plays and short stories in collections seem to call for author and title
analytics. Collected biographies and secions of factual books may need subject
There is more than one accepted form for analytics. Since many libraries
use printed cards, the unit card is commonly used. Those who type analytic
cards may prefer to use the partial contents form, or another shortened form.
Zxamples will follog, using the partial contents form.
When a work needs to be analyzed, the cataloger should first catalog it
as a whole, listing the parts in the contents note.
When the parts of a book are all by one author, only title analyLies need
to be made. The separate parts may be listed on the title page, or in t table
of contents. Some libraries follow the practice of omitting the listing of titles
of plays, etc., on the title page, if so given, but list them in a contents note.

removed from the card catalog in Order to remove all records of the work.
The listing of all the added entry cards made for any work is called the
tracing. Printed cards have the tracing on the face of the card near the bottom.
Since, often there is not room on the face of a typed card, it is placed on the
back of the main entry. When more than one card is necessary to complete the
main entry, the tracing is typed on the back of the first card. To place the
tracing, turn the author card face down with the hole at the top and record the
tracing in the upper left corner two lines below the hole and indented two spaces
from the left edge. Arrange the tracing items in the following order: subject
headings, other added entries, title, or titles, and series. Within any category
of headings it is not necessary to adhere to any special order in listing them.
The form of the traing is to match exactly the heading to be used on the added
entry card as to cOitalization, and spacing. If a decision has been made to
type subject headings in red, they will be typed in black in the tracing.

alphabetically by the name of the biographee. Biographies about the same person
are then sub-filed by the main entry.
The number of copies of a given title owned by the library is indicated
in pencil in the left margin near the collation. The number of copies also
appears on the face of the main entry in the same position as on the shelf card.
It is the custom in many libraries to record on the back of the shelf list
card the source from which the material has been received, the date, and the
price of each copy. If such a record is kept, an accession book and accession
numbers for books are seldom necessary. If an accurate accession record has been
kept and accession numbers have been used, the librarian may or may not continue
with the practice as she sees fit. If accession numbers are used, they are
entered on the title page of the book and on the shelf card.
To type the order information, place the shelf list card, face down with
the hole at the top, and record the order information two lines below the hole,
beginning two spaces from the left edge of the card. Leave two spaces between the
date and the dealer, and two between the dealer and the price. If additional
copies are received, record them in the same way. The same form is used for all
material cataloged.

been adopted for a given subject. Cards indicating such references are called
cross reference cards. Since these cards do not represent books or materials,
they do not bear a call number. There are two kinds of cross reference cards,
namely, see references and see also references.
The see reference card directs the inquirer from an entry under which
material has not been listed to an entry under which it has been listed. See
references are made for synonymous terms for subject headings, for the second
part of a compound heading, for the direct form of an inverted heading, and
for variations of spelling.
On the fourth line of the card at second indention in capital letters,
write the heading under which the material it not listed. On the sixth line
at third indention write the word see in lower case letters. On the eighth
line at first indention write the heading under which the material has been
listed. Those who prefer subject readings in red, will follow the capitali-
zation and form given in Sears List of Sdbiect Headings for Small Libraries.
The words see and see also are always typed in small black letters.

It happens occasionally that two or more books by the same or by different
authors, each book with a separate title page and with separate paging, are
bound together. Such a publication is known as a "bound-with." Each part is
cataloged as an independent book in the usral way. Obviously the book can be
assigned only one classification number even though the parts deal with entirely
different subjects. The classification number for the first part determines the
book's call number. Notes are made on the card showing the author and title of
the other work or works with which it is bound. The note reads Bound with followed
by the author's name in inverted order, using initials to represent given names;
two spaces after this the title of the other work; then three spaces later, tie
place and date of publication.

As has been stated, musical works having titles embodying names of musical
forms such as concertos, sonatas, or symphonies, may have variant forms and
popular titles.. Cross references are made froth-variant titles to the uniform
title as set forth in bibliographic Sources and music reference works. The
uniform title seeks to identify the composition aeto form, using such additional
elements as medium, key and the composer's or musicologist's numbering to assign
it a unique entry. As a rule cross references need notbe made for'uniform
titles of compositions 'based on the name of a musical form unless the composition

A, serial is a publication which is issued at:more or less regular
intervals and in the same or similar format. Single issues of serials may
be monographs, or they may be such pUblications as-newspapers, magazines,
yearbooks, almanacs, annual or biennial reports, and directories. In .
most libraries magazines and newspapers will not be cataloged, but such
serials as the World Almanac and Who's Who in America Will be cataloged.
A serial composed of many monographs may have each unit treated individually,
but non - monographic serials must be treated together as a Set.
In handling serials the small, popular library may-dispense With much
of the detail that is necessary in a scholarly collection. SUggeitions offered
here will be intended to serve only-as a brief introduction to the subject.
A complete treatment of serial cataloging practice may be found in
Anglo-American CELalora..... Rules, p. 231 -2).6.
Briefly stated, principles governing the cataloging of serials are:
1. Entry is under title unless the title includes the name of the
corporate body responsible for publication. A serial requiring
the name of its sponsoring body for identifiCation is entered
under its corporate author.
2. The source of information for the preparation of the catalog card
is the latest volume. This policy contrasts with the practice of
preparing the catalog entry for a monographic set from the first
volume issued.
3. Since serials frequently change subtitles, a short title is usually
used in order to avoid constant revision of the catalog entry.
Libraries may have many incomplete serial sets in their collections. Cards
for these sets are so made that the issues in the collection are clearly indicated
and that an indefinite number of issues can be recorded as they are acquired. .
A set composed of every issue of a serial which has ceased publication
is a closed set. One that is still being published is obviously incomplete
and is called an "open" set. It is cataloged using the "open" entry form in
setting down, the holdings, the imprint and the collation, thus allowing for
revision as new volumes are added..
.The library's holdings may be indicated in the body of the card. An
acceptable alternate practice is to record in-a "Library has" note the number
of volumes the library owns. Leave one line between the "Library has" note
and whatever precedes it on' the card. If the volumes are numbered, use the
abbreviation v. for the volUMe, followed by the number inAriOic numeralsva
comma and the date of the volume. If the library has more than one copy of a
volume, record in pencil following the date of the volume the number of copies
using Arabic numerals for numbers, followed by the abbreviation c. for copies.
Editors of Aerials change frequently and are not necessarily always recorded.
Consequently added. entries may not be made for them.
Such items as dates in the imprint, the number of volumes in the collation,
and the unber of copies if more than one, all of which are subject to change as
new acqt_sitions are made are recorded in pencil on the card. Should the library
not have acquired yearbooks for successive years, space is left in the "Library
has" note so that the year and volume may-be filled in as the yearbooks are
After making the main entry card, added entry cards may be made for serials
in the usual way, except that the library's holdings are not given. on them and
the catalog user is instructed to see the main entry. This eliminates the recurring
necessity of altering the holdings statement or the 'library has" note on all
cards except the main entry and shelf list card.
Some libraries use commercially printed cards and simply Check the
volume numbers or years that the library.owns. The imprint and collation
may be left open on both the main entry and shelf card. The printed holdings
card is filed immediately behind the shelf list card and the instruction:
For volumes in library see shelf lidt card. is put on the main entry.

A set of books is composed of two or more volumes which have a title in
common and'are bound in uniform or similar binding. The volumes of a set may
be published at the same time or at different times; they may be unified by
sharing the same authorship or they may be written by different authors. They
are usually issued by the same publisher. If a set has a distinctive title
likely to be well known,, and a general index, the cataloger will catalog the
set as a whole to keep. all of the voltmestogether on. he shelf. If each

Since the present day library has developed from a book center to a
media center, it is inevitable that the librarian will be responsible for
organizing many forms of materials. The filmed materials may include motion
pictures, filmstrips, microfilm, microfiche, transparencies, and slides.
There may be recorded materials such as disc recordings, taps recordings, and
cassettes. Printed materials, in addition to books, may include music, maps,
charts, pictures, and microcarde. In addition to these, there may be globes,
games, roans, and kits calbining so many items t407 sometime defy description.
No one can predict with certainty and limits to thitinde or types of materials
to be found in the libraries of the future. The principles gemming the
organization of all materials remain the sae; the challenge is to make a
satisfactory adaptation of conventional cataloging practices to satisfy the
organization demands of the librarian while meeting the expanding and unforeseen
needs of the library's clientele.
Rules for cataloging non-print materials have.not kept WO' with the
rapid growth in the variety of the materials themselves. Although the Anglo-
American Catalo.* .. Rules offer clear policies for the older forms of nii;book
materials, no 1. CO is available for some types of media that are commonly
found in today's media centers. For this reason some of the suggestions offered
in this work have been drawn from other sources in the belief that they answer
felt needs. The chief reference used has been Riddle's Non-Book Materials.
In addition to describing non-print materials on catalog cards, the
librarian must decide on a plan for organizing and housing the collection. The
method may be by order of aoquisition for each category of material, but
increasingly for media centers, the trend is to classify the material following
the same scheme as that chosen for the book collection. This organization
facilitates the integration of the collection and allows library users to choose
the most appropriate material for their purposes.
If it is decided to classify materials using the Dewey Decimal Classification,
a symbol representing the type of material should be placed above the call number
such as the following:
Recording of an English drama
Fs Filmstrip about trees
An alternative procedure wild be to place the name of the type of material
above the Dewey number on all cute in a set ass Filmstrip ;Disc recording
582 822
The material presented here is, except for a minor variation in punctuation,
a summary of the instructions for cataloging recordings as given in Ash-
American Catalot Rules, p. 321-328.
Main entries for recorded materials are established in the same way as
for printed materials. In other words, the recorded words of an author are
entered under the author; recorded music of a composer, under the name of the
composer; recorded works of two individuals without a collective title, under
the name of the person responsible for the first work; recorded works from many
sources and having a collective title, under the title. For disc recordings
the source of information used on the catalog card is the disc label, although
it is frequently necessary to take information from the album cover. The labels
on both sides of a record are considered in the same way as the double spread of
a title page. The card form is the same for recordings as for a book, except
that following the complete title, the word Phonodisc is inserted, enclosed in
parentheses. Recordings may also be in the "ir-"Tar-Fornsapes, cylinders or rolls.
In these instances the terms Phonotam, Phonocylinder, and Ph_ onoroll are used
in thersame way as the term PEonolisc.
People having an author relationship with a recording are usually mentioned
in the body of the card, while performers are cited in a note.
The imprint for a record consists of the trade name of the record or the
producer followed by the album number. If the records have also disc numbers,
these are recorded in parentheses after the album number.
The collation of a phonodisc consists of the number of aides, the size
(diameter in inches) and the playing speed, represented by the number of
revolutions per minute. Two typewriter spaces are left after the first and
second components. If there is more than one album, this is indicated in
addition to the number of sides in the following form: 3 albums (12s.).
Stereophonic recordings may be so designated by adding stereo. after the
playing speed if it appears on record label or album cover.
As for books, the complete set of cards will consist of the main entry,
shelf card and any added entry cards. Added entry cards are traced and made
in the same way as for books:- -
Records may be either classified by Dewey or arranged by order of accession
depending on the kind of use to be made of them. Some collections have used
broad categories by type of content, as dramas, symphonies, vocal music, children's
stories, dance music, etc.

Tape recordings are handled in the same way as disc recordings with respect
to entry. Since. there is no label, and frequently no permanent container; from
which to transcribe the title, it is usually taken from the introduction heard
on the tape. In some cases the cataloger must supply a title, which is then
enclosed in brackets. The term Phonotlee in parentheses is added after the
title. The imprint consists of the name of the producer, and serial number of
the tape if the producer is known primarily as a producer of recordings. Other-
wise the imprint includes the place of publication, publisher, date of issue,
and the serial number or numbers of the recordings. Since tapes 'are often
records of addresses, public occasions, and actual happenings, the.date may be
specific as to month and day, in addition to the year.
The collation is made up of the number of reels, followed by the size
(diameter in inches) in parentheses and the playing speed, represented by the
number of inches of tape played per second. A typical collation reads:
1 reel (5in.) 3 3 /gips. The collation for cassette tape recordings consists
of the number of units and the designation stereo. if applicable. For example:
1 cassette. stereo. It is not necessary tringrcate speed since all cassettes
are the same, but if the playing time is available it is given in a note having
the following form: Duration: 18 min.
Notes may be used following the pattern for disc recordings.
Sets of cards will consist of the main entry, shelf card and the necessary
entry cards.
Call numbers for tape recordings may be assigned in the same way as for
disc recordings.

Anglo-American CataloginK Rules call for both filmstrips and motion
picturesto be entered under title since both are ordinarily made by production
organizations and represent the work of many individuals working together.
Cards are always in hanging indention form, with the title beginning at first
indention and the second line and successive lines of the body of the card
beginning at second indention. The term FiImstri in parentheses follows the
title. Thg imprint of both films and filmstr ps usually consists of the producer
and the date. Occasionally different firms may be responsible for editorial
supervision, for production, or for distribution. In such a case both may appear
on the catalog card. No information in the body of the card will be bracketed
if it is secured from the container, or the accompanying text or user's manual.
The collation of a single filmstrip will show the number of frames, followed by
the abbreviation fr. The collation will also indicate the presence of color by
the appropriate term, the abbrbviatnn b&w or color. For a set of filmstrips the
collation will show the number of the set. The nuMber of frames in each strip of
a set may be shown in the contents note Immediately following each title in the
Filmstrips may be classified by Dewey or assigned accession numbers. A
designation above the classification number on all cards is used to show the
form of material as Filmstrip for a filmstrip about animals. An alternative is
FIlmstrip, Filmstrip, Filmstrip, etc. for accession Trubered filmstrips.
Guides and other material accompanying filmstrips may be assigned the call
number of.the strip and, if it is not possible to package all related items together,
stored by classification =fiber in a standard legal size filing cabinet..
Added entries are made as necessary in the usual pattern.

Sound filmstrips are cataloged from the standpoint of the filmstrip, with
the disc appearing as part of the.collation, for example: 60fr. blew. and
phonodisc: ls. 12in. 33 1/3rpm. For a color filmstrip use the following forma
52fr. color and phonodisc: ls. 12in. 33 1/3rpm. The location of the
recording is indicated in a note, if it is not possible to store the strip and
recording together. In this case, a complete set of cards is made for the
filmstrip. A shelf card only is made for the disc or tape supplying the sound.
The preferable practice in media centers is to catalog and store interdependent
media together.

The cataloging of films and filmstrips is similar with respect to deter-
mination of entry and the content of the body of the card. The term Motion
picture in parentheses follows the title. The imprint consists of the producer
and the date. The collation consists of the running time in minutes, followed
by the sound indication, the color indication, and the width of the film in
millimeters. Black and white films are indicated by using the abbreviation
b&w; others are designated as color. Sample collations follow:
14min. sd. color. 16mm.
13min. sd. b&w. 16mm.
Films may be organized by Dewey classification or in accession order:
The same principles and possibilities hold for films as for filmstrips as
far as making sets of cards, tracings and added entries.

As cartridge loop films are increasingly used in independent study, the
rules for cataloging given in the Anglo-American Cataloging Rulesdo not seem
adequate for their organization iniidia centers. Riddle's suggestion of a
special medium category (Motion icturelom) and the use of the term cartridge
in the corlation have their merits. ihti manual, however, the AACR directives
are followed except for the width designation of the film. In this case the
description, super 8mm. is used if it is appropriate.
Entry is made and cataloging done in the same way as other items with the
medium designation (Motion picture) following the title. The collation consists
of the running time, designation indicating silent, si., Bound, sd., b&w. or
color, and the width in millimeters. A super 8 film is so indicated:17r examples
SW. si. color. super 8mm.
For a set of caAridge films use the number of cartridges before completing
the collation in the standard form. For example; 3 cartridges (4min. each) si.
color. super 8mm.
Fill loops may be classified by Dewey or arranged in accession order but it
is suggested they hsve their own storage category separate from longer films.
Added entries may be male in the same way as for films and filmstrips.

Slides may be cataloged by applying the principles for organizing other
filmed materials. As a rule, slides are produced in sets and will serve the
purposes of the user if they are cataloged as sets unless the set is so large
and diverse that breaking it into subsets covering detailed topics would be
more advisable. In a few cases it might even be useful to catalog slides in-
Entry is usually under title except that slides of an artist's work will
be entered under the artist's name. If no getieral title for the set is on the
slides, it may be taken from a dealer's catalog, or supplied by the cataloger.
The imprint consists of the prodimer'and date. The collation consists of the
number of slides in the set, the color indication, and the dimensions of the
slides. Indication that a set is partly colored may be made thus:
12 slides (part col.) The complettcn of the main entry and making of the set
of cards follow the usual cataloging principles. Persona] added entries are
seldom made, but subject added entries are of great importance.

TFansparencies may be handled similarly to slides. They are entered
under title unless an author or artist is clearly indicated. Occasionally
the cataloger may need to supply a title. If so, it is enclosed in brackets
and follomed by the medium designaticn (Transparency). The producer and date
comprise the imprint.

dimensions of the piece in inches. For example: 1 piece. colnr. HX12in.

Because of their form and function maps require epecial consideration in
applying cataloging principles. The complete map is considered is a title
page and any available information on it may be used. Only informat!on taken
frorl witside sources must be bracketed.
Maps are entered under the person or body responsible for them. The title
may be supplied the cataloger if none appears on the face of the map. The
imprint consists of the place, publisher end date, in the usual form.
'he collation for a single map will consist of the word mu followed by
it:. dimensions in centimeters. For a set of maps the lumber Ithe set will

It will often be possible to organize pictorial materials according to a
subject scheme such as is used for pamphlets and other materials not of suffi-
cient importance to justify cataloging. There are times, however, when the
subject scheme is not adequate; or, when the importance of the artist, or de-
signer, make separate cataloging desirable. These materials are covered in the
Anglo- American Cataloginu Rules, p. 329-342, and in Riddle's Non-Book Materials.
The pictorial representation should be entered under the name of the individual
or body responsible for it if such information can be determined. Works of
individual artists are entered under the artist; works of a corporate body,
under the name of the body, and works resulting from efforts of many individuals,
under title. Reproductions of originals are entered in the same way as originals.
If no title appears on the wick, the cataloger may supply an appropriate title.
The imprint consists of the place and publisher, if it appears on the work, and
a date. Me date may be the date of execution, or publication. In the absence
of a dcte on the l'iece the cataloger may supply an approximate date or use the
abbreviation n.d. The supplied date will he enclosed in brackets.
The examrles in this manual use Riddle's practice of placing medium desig-
notion (Std print), (Art =Lao, (Chart), or (Picture) following the title
tr, indicate specific categories of mare-Ras.
The conaqon nonsist9 of the term describinc the item, preceded by the
numb :r of items if rocr one, and the dimensions in centimeters, height given
first, exce;'t for photographs, which are measured in inches. Color will be
deiznated b;,, col. preceding the descriptive term applied to the material.

person. The cataloger supplies a title if none has been given by the producer.
The term (Model) follows the title. The imprint will consist of place, producer
and date. 77ecollation indicates the number of pieces, dimensions in inches
wh,n.e significant, and a color indiention. If there are more than ten pieces,
the term "various pieces" is used.

Games of many sorts are now finding their way into the library collection
as instruments for teaching and learning. Since traditional and well-known
games may be issued in varying forms, and new games are likely to be the
creation of many individuals working together, they are entered under title,
as found on the box or accompanying material, followed by the designation (Game).
The imprint consists of the place, producer and date. For collation use the
number of pieces, enumerating various types of pieces when significant. For a
game with many kinds of different pieces use "various pieces." The cataloger
should devise any notes necessary to offer relevant information not appropriately
included elsewhere on the card.
Games may be classified and stored by Dewey classification number.

A kit is a collection of materials intended to be used as a unit. The
items have been brought together or processed to contribute to the realisation
of a specific objective. It is not necessary that the items in a kit be used
simultaneously; same components may be suitable for independent use. It is
usually advisable to catalog as a unit those materials so issued and marketed.
If no author, either personal or corporate, is indicated, the kit is entered
under title and followed by the medium designation (Kit). Imprint consists of
place, producer and date. Information for making the catalog card may be taken
from any source in the kit without being bracketed on the card. The collation
enumerates the kind and number of items included. Descriptions of individual
items in the kit are not necessary.
Notes may be added to convey any relevant information not appropriately
included in the body of the card, or collation.
The set of cards will be made in accordance with the accepted principles
of cataloging. Kits may be classified and stored by Dewey number or by accession

Libraries may set up and maintain authority files to record the latest
acceptable forms for author entries. They may also have authority files for
subject headings appearing in the catalogs and the reference cards made to
aid the library's public in using the subject headings. Small libraries may
consider their card catalog to be the authority for the form of an author's
name, but they will wish, in any case, to keep a record of the cross references
they have made. This record becomes, then, an authority file for entries needing
cross references. The file will include duplicates of the cross references made
for the public catalog, as well as a card clearly indicating the references made.
For example:
De Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel
Cervantes Saavedra, Mieuel de, 1547-1616.
Saavedra, Miguel de Cervantes
Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de, 1547-1616.
Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de, 1547-1616.

Some libraries keep a record of the subjects used in the catalog by
puttth pencil checl.yarks by the subject in the published list of hea"ngs.
The advantage of irch simplicity is questioned, however, whon n new edition
of the sul)ject heading list demands complete compaeson with the earlier list

withol_t maintairing an authority file, but most libraries 1,111 Irish to record

"SOP tiSn" ra4e for the public catalog, Pt well .t1S cards showing the
