Dr. Athena Salaba is associate professor in the School of Library and Information Science at Kent State University. The late Lois Mai Chan was formerly Professor Emerita in the School of Library and Information Science at the University of Kentucky, Lexington. She was author of eight books and numerous articles and co-editor of two collections in the areas of knowledge organization and subject indexing. In 1989, Chan was awarded the Margaret Mann Citation for Outstanding Achievement in Cataloging and Classification given by the American Library Association, and in 1992, she received the Distinguished Service Award from the Chinese-American Librarians Association.


[T]he book is a great resource and collects a lot of cataloging information that is otherwise dispersed. It would be a valuable resource to a new cataloger or any cataloger needing help interpreting RDA. It is a text for catalogers in any type of library and for any type of material (including non-traditional materials). It should be found in every library school library as a reference resource. * Technical Services Quarterly *
