BeschreibungFrom the impact of the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, including amendments, to technology's potential for increasing productivity, you need to keep abreast of the latest changes and the newest innovations.These detailed guides will help you:
-- Determine hardware and software needs for technical services workstations
-- Accurately catalog material from serials to reproductions to interactive multimedia
-- Integrate preservation activities into the acquisition processCatalogers of art materials have had few resources or guidelines for cataloging such works as prints, photographs, slides, and digital images. Thanks to the ArtMARC Sourcebook, however, this should change.Profiling the proven cataloging methods of experts from libraries, art galleries, museums, and other institutions, the ArtMARC Sourcebook outlines cataloging techniques on a wide variety of resources, from ancient artifacts to architectural drawings. Its practical guidance helps librarians modify and standardize MARC to meet the challenge of organizing diverse materials for patron access.In the ArtMARC Sourcebook, the editors have compiled a valuable data dictionary on the MARC fields, along with data conversion comments. A complete bibliography categorized by different management areas also provides vital resources designed to improve the important practice of art cataloging.Given that the general rules and descriptive fields of MARC are not readily usable for art forms without modification and unique descriptive data, this helpful resource fills the gap by sharing the practices of leading catalogers from a number of different institutions.
