Description: From Library Journal
Cataloging the Web is a collection of papers presented at the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services' 2000 preconference "Metadata for Web Resources." (For a preview of the topics covered, the complete table of contents can be found on the publisher's web site, The best parts are actually at the beginning and end. Jennifer Younger's introduction gives a nice overview of the topic past, present, and possible future, as well as a brief literature review. Clifford Lynch concludes the volume by urging us to broaden our thinking about metadata beyond its use for description and classification. In between lies the usual fare: Sheila Intner's thoughtful look at standards; Jean Hirons talking about the rule revisions for serials; Michael Gorman's diatribe about the worthlessness of most of what's on the web; testimonials for new products; and a preponderance of "how we're doing it" articles. In his preface, editor Jones tells us the goal of this book is "to give an overview of not only what is currently afoot on the Web but also what is possible." Unfortunately, Cataloging the Web doesn't quite reach this lofty aim, devoting instead most pages to rehashing the past and present and ignoring the future. Still, it's not too pricey, so if you're building your collection of cataloging reference sources, go ahead and buy it. April Bohannan, Virginia Beach P.L., VA
