This book focuses on global perspectives of education for cataloguing against the backdrop of the growing need and demand for international cataloguing standards and cooperation. The education and training of cataloguers in 6 countries (in alphabetical order) is represented in 22 papers written by lecturers and practitioners who reflect on the current developments, trends and critical issues in cataloguing. The American cataloguing issues were excluded as it was previously covered by Janet Swan Hill in Education for cataloging and classification and the organization of information (The Haworth Press, 2002).
