Sample text

In the days of dictionary and card catalogues, they were provided via an alphabetical index or series of indexes and providing extra access points for items in the catalogue was a rather laborious process. In the case 25 of a dictionary catalogue, each additional access point took up at least one extra line; in the case of a card catalogue, it meant writing or typing extra cards. The additional entries usually had brief details of the document and a reference to the ‘main entry’, which was the entry under the name of the main author or the title (for a document without an author).

Ideally you should refrain from making editorial comment and describe what you see as objectively as possible. This might involve not correcting typographical errors on the title page, or finding neutral words to describe the subject of a document whose conclusions you violently disagree with. The ideal of subject cataloguing is to describe the subject in terms which are used by people who are interested in that subject so that they will know what you are talking about. Assuming you are using a controlled vocabulary (where there is only one approved term for describing a subject and all other possible equivalents are given as cross-references) this will mean updating your subject headings when the approved term changes.

Examples include computer science, globalisation and ecology. 37 If you are not using a controlled vocabulary for subject keywords, maintaining subject headings is not a problem because when the ‘approved’ subject terms change you simply switch to the new words without changing anything in the old records. However, although this will save you time it will create a problem for the users of the catalogue, because when they search for subject keywords the system will only retrieve records with the term (old or new) which they typed in, so they will not find all the materials available on that particular subject unless they know all the terms which might be used to describe the subject, and are also aware that they need to do a separate search for each one.
