Organization, Representation and Description Through the Digital Age

DLIS faculty members Christine M. Angel and Caroline Fuchs recently published the book Organization, Representation and Description through the Digital Age.

Cataloging standards practiced within the traditional library, archive and museum environments are not interoperable for the retrieval of objects within the shared online environment. The book shows how these standards have been adapted to accommodate the adoption of new cataloging technologies as information professionals` tools moved from the book to the card and finally to the online cataloging environment.
