"Comprehensive, practical, clear, and written with a dash of
humour - this is the textbook about AACR2 and RDA for which
cataloguers have been waiting." -- Karen Attar "A worthy successor to Bowman's Essential Cataloguing.
Practical Cataloguing does exactly what it says on the tin:
offers a practical, pragmatic approach to the basics of cataloguing
in AACR2, RDA and MARC21 with useful sample records for
reference." -- Celine Carty "...a fine example of the kind of transitional work needed as we
move forward with implementation and practical application of
RDA." -- Shawne D. Miksa
