Electronic versions of book of urizen, the kelmscott chaucer and robinson crusoe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The author addresses issues regarding the cataloging of digital manifestations of works. The problem of how to catalog digitized rare books and electronic texts to facilitate access to works while distinguishing editions is discussed. Using digital versions of Blake's Book of Urizen, The Kelmscott Chaucer and Robinson Crusoe as examples, the article focuses on the way current cataloging aids or hinders access to works. Specific problems include: the non-uniform use of uniform titles; varying application of the Library of Congress Rule Interpretation (1.11A) concerning electronic reproductions; and the lack of analysis at the work level in digital projects.
