Cataloging sheet maps: The basics

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Gain the skills necessary to catalog monographic sheet maps and map sets! With an easily understood how-to format, this ready reference manual will introduce you to the basics of cataloging sheet maps on OCLC, using MARC 21 and ISBD standards and AACR2R. It will guide you through each area of the bibliographic record, focusing most specifically on the title and statement of responsibility, mathematical data, physical description, main entry, and notes areas. Approaching the subject from the perspective that maps are not that much more difficult to catalog than monographs, this book will familiarize you with the few fields unique to map cataloging as well as the fields that are common to monographs but simply used in a different way. This essential volume:

describes the cataloging process as it relates to all parts of the record, including subject analysis, coding of fixed fields and OXX fields, and creating G-class call numbers

provides an up-to-date list of map cataloging tools

presents special chapters on cataloging historical sheet maps and special formats such as wall maps, map series or sets, and reproductions

includes illustrations of bibliographic records, field-level examples, tables of information, and diagrams of maps to be used to highlight key concepts

Ideal for the new or inexperienced maps cataloger, this volume will help you become comfortable and confident while working with sheet maps. It also puts you in touch with current reference sources and tools, both online and off.
