A directory of U.S. government statistics publications by issuing agency. Entries include GPO stock number, LC and Dewey classification, OCLC and ISSN numbers, and sometimes a description. Includes geographic index.
The authors provide an organized source of examples of Library of Congress cataloguing practice according to Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, Second Edition (AACR 2) and seek to save the cataloger's time and assist them in maintaining consistency in their catalogs. The examples are arranged by AACR 2 rule numbers. The book includes numerous examples of descriptive cataloguing and of serial cataloguing, while it does not include examples of chapters 7-11 of the rules, which cover motion-pictures and video recordings, graphic materials, machine readable data files, three-dimensional artifacts and microforms, and of rules covering geographic names and references. Throughout the book, few examples are given for rules requiring little or no interpretation and many when individual judgement is required. ISBN 0-8108-1683-0 : $19.50 (For use only in the library).
