Supplementing existing textbooks with exercises that allow practice in description, classification, subject analysis, and MARC 21, this workbook pinpoints problem areas that arise in the cataloging of a wide variety of materials in public, school, special, and academic library settings. Real title pages and other necessary materials are used throughout. AACR2 rule numbers are included, as well as questions for consideration. MARC records are provided for some 150 titles, and a supplemental Web site provides full keys and further details. The site also aids teachers by providing indexes beyond those in the book. This book will appeal to all serious cataloging students as necessary practice for sharpening their skills, as well as to beginning catalogers in the large library environment. It will be a valuable addition as individual study material and for in-house training of catalogers.

Joanna F. Fountain is assistant professor of library science at Sam Houston State University. During her career, which began as a library page at Syracuse University, she has worked in children s services and as a bookmobile librarian. She has completed a variety of cataloging projects and served Texas schools as liaison for the K 12 union catalog. Throughout her career, she has sought to combine her dual interests in Spanish and library science. Since she began full-time teaching, she has continued to conduct workshops and has been working on a bilingual subject heading list designed to increase access to library collections for Spanish speakers. Joanna is the author or editor of Subject Headings for School and Public Libraries (2001) and, with Elizabeth Haynes, Unlocking the Mysteries of Cataloging: A Workbook of Examples (2005). Joanna hopes that this edition of Cataloging Correctly for Kids will provide guidance for new librarians and updated information for those who catalog for young readers and researchers.
