Description: From Booklist
Penn State map cataloger Andrew presents the basics of map cataloging using AACR2, the MARC record, LCSH, and the LC Classification G class (unfortunately, most public libraries and the many academic libraries that use the Dewey decimal classification are left out in the cold). The heart of the book deals with the description of maps, with attention to the special cartographic fixed fields in the MARC record, determining a main-entry heading and title when they are not always obvious, the special mathematical data area for scale and projection, the physical description, and the notes regarding map features. Peripheral chapters list tools of the trade, illustrate the use of subject headings and classification notation, and discuss historical maps and special formats. The volume concludes with MARC tagging exercises, a bibliography, and a subject index. Students interested in map cataloging and catalogers who catalog maps only occasionally will find this a most helpful guide. RBB
