"I recommend this book to instructors and students, to practicing professionals and paraprofessionals, and to selectors for libraries that support library science curricula. Ideally, this text would be used in conjunction with a wide variety of practical exercises in original cataloging and the creation of authority records." - Technical Services Quarterly "All in all, the authors have done a fine job with this eleventh edition, a job which its original author, Margaret Mann, undoubtedly would admire and find extremely helpful for students and other pre-professionals that need to learn about cataloging-what it is, what it should accomplish, and how it is done. Buyers will get a lot for their money." - Technicalities
