Product Description


Catalogue 2.0 certainly has its value as a snapshot of where the library catalogue is today and an exploration of where it may be headed. While sections of the book are particularly relevant to technical services and systems librarians, it is certainly worth a read for anyone interested in both a summary of recent developments in and forecast for the library catalog. It could also serve as a reading for a course on library systems, and some of the individual chapters may be appropriate for other library courses as well. (Library Resources and Technical Services)

Chambers has succeeded in editing an evocative and convincing work. Those seeking an authoritative description of this historical moment, of what Calhoun call this "era of discontinuous change", will be well served by this collection. (Technicalities)

Catalogue 2.0 is valuable reading for anyone involved in providing a version of the library catalogue to users, which is most of us.
(Australian Library Journal)

What is the state of the library catalogue now, and what might it become in the future? Authors of this excellent book answer those questions through theoretical discussions and practical examples of what have been done by libraries. Written by an international team of library and information professionals, Catalogue 2.0 does not disappoint.
(Collection Management)

This book presents complex theoretical concepts well. It provides practical examples and case studies too. In my opinion it shows the Library Catalogue is alive and well – but is also evolving as the technological landscape and the needs and wishes of users evolve. I think it is essential reading and the broad range of topics covered give a good overview of the future of the catalogue.
(Managing Information)

This book is easy to read, and covers many issues in its 200 pages. The book encourages further discussion of the issues raised, rather than stating an immovable position. For this reason it is recommended as being suitable for students of library and information science, as well as cataloguers, systems librarians, managers, e-resources
librarians and client services librarians. The sections on RDF will be of interest to all professionals working within cataloguing.
(Australian Academic and Research Libraries)
