USEFUL, THOUGHT-PROVOKING....Lively reading-full of wisdom, provocative, challenging, and firmly supportive of cataloging as a core competency of librarian ship in a time when the simplicity of meta data is so seductive. I hope this book will reach beyond its obvious audience-catalogers and cataloging educators-who will like it very much. Library administrators and public service librarians will benefit from the clear focus on the value of cataloging to the library and its clientele." -Margaret Rohdy, Head of Research, Training & Quality Management "Should be REQUIRED FEADING for school of information science faculty and library administrators...Describes a possibly disastrous shift in the library profession based on a misconception about the potential of the computer-a misconception equivalent to the faith that alchemy would eventually work." -Martha M. Yee, Ph.D., Cataloging Supervisor, UCLA Film & Television Archive
