Book cataloging: a reverse way
Keywords:Book cataloging, Bibliography, Librarianship
AbstractThe rules of book-cataloging are incomplete and inaccurate when they are based on a particular book-collection and on a particular historical context. The proper way to find universal and satisfactory cataloging rules is to deduce them by the principles of bibliography. Since the bibliography has the task to identify and organize the semantic structures and links which underlying the human knowledge, a cataloging system based on bibliography would have the same features. Such a system would be effective in every age and context.
