Subject: Cataloguing of Electronic Resources
I am currently sitting on a review board for the future of cataloging electronic resources. It is my task to explore the philosophical questions behind this issue in both professional journals and from other similar studies. I was wondering if anyone has any leads for me. I have found some information, but it seems that the bulk of it merely states what they are currently doing and not the philosophical origins of these actions.
Some sample questions that we wish to address are:
1. Whether libraries should provide "one stop shopping"?
2. And if so, should catalogers use one record or two?
Thanks so very much in advance.
