Library cataloging is a collection of methods that allow for the categorization and classification of resources of a library. This facilitates browsing for material related to any particular field. Classification depends on the _aboutness_ of the subject as well as the accession number which indicates where the resource is shelved. Modern classification systems include the Dewey Decimal System, Colon Classification, the Library of Congress Classification, etc. This book is compiled in such a manner, that it will provide in-depth knowledge about the theory and practice of library cataloging. Through this textbook, we attempt to further enlighten the readers about the new concepts in this field.

Book Description :

Although they may not have always been explicitly stated, library work has always had normative goals. Until recently, such goals have largely been abstract; they are things like knowledge creation, education, forwarding science, preserving history, supporting democracy, and safeguarding civilization. The modern spirit of social and cultural critique, however, has focused our attention on the concrete, material relationships that determine human potentiality and opportunity, and library workers are increasingly seeing the institution of the library, as well as library work, as embedded in a web of relations that extends beyond the library’s traditional sphere of influence. In light of this critical consciousness, more and more library and information science professionals are coming to see themselves as change agents and front-line advocates of social justice issues. This book will serve as a guide for those library workers and related information professionals that disregard traditional ideas of "library neutrality" and static, idealized conceptions of Western culture. The book will work as an entry point for those just forming a consciousness oriented towards social justice work and will be also be of value to more experienced "transformative library workers" as an up-to-date supplement to their praxis. Justifies the use of a variety of theoretical and practical resources for effecting positive change Explores the role of the librarian as change agents
