The world of cataloging is changing. Fueling much of this change
is the proliferation of electronic resources, especially
web-based resources. At the same time, new concepts in cataloging
have been emerging.  Among the most important is the introduction
of the concept of “seriality” to address change within
bibliographic resources issued over time. In response to this
rethinking of cataloging conventions, the chapter for serials in
AACR2, Chapter 12, has been revised and expanded to cover all
“Continuing Resources” and will soon be implemented.

This CSSC/CC:DA program will provide an introduction to the
revised chapter and the related rule changes.  It is intended for
a broad spectrum of catalogers: those who catalog serials,
monographs (especially loose-leaf publications), electronic
resources, and any other material of a continuing nature.

The program will begin with a broad overview of the revised
Chapter 12 and then proceed to the particulars of the new
category of “Integrating Resources.”  Jean Hirons (Library of
Congress) will speak on the concepts, definitions, and
descriptive cataloging revisions involved. Regina Reynolds
(Library of Congress) will speak on the newly introduced concepts
of Major and Minor changes.  Following them are two speakers who
will focus on integrating resources: Rhonda Lawrence (UCLA Law
Library) will speak on cataloging loose-leafs, and Adam Schiff
(University of Washington) will speak on cataloging web-based

Afterwards, time permitting, the Committee to Study Serials
Cataloging will conduct a brief business meeting, with reports
from the committee’s CC:DA Liaison, as well as reports from the
Library of Congress and NSDP on serial-related activities.

Please join us for this important program on the ongoing changes
in the cataloging world.
