    Finally finished it! I realized while reading this (and taking my Cataloging class) that I do not like cataloging. This book was alright. It had good information but I didn't really use it to help my homework. I found my teacher's powerpoints to be better than this. At least it's done.

    I have no idea if the book was good or not. It seemed good, but it didn't help me understand cataloging any better, which was disappointing. I still suck at cataloging. I may be a little less-worse, but not by much. There's a lot of information, but I don't understand most of it. Is it more user error (me) than writer error (book)? No idea. I feel like this book properly exposed me to cataloging information, but didn't help me learn any of it. 2.5* rounded down.

    I think there are many improvements that could be made in the examples given and their accompanying illustrations. This is the sole reason I’m unable to rate it 3 or higher. It detracts from the text itself and the ability to use it as reference. There many tools and information online that are easier to navigate and clearer in their explanation than this text.

    This book was so dry!!! It was very difficult to get through! It makes a great sleep aid- you can read it and it will bore you to sleep or you can smack your head with it and knock yourself out! :)

    Yes, I did actually read all of this book!!! Highly theoretical and thorough if you are studying cataloging. Covers both American and Canadian cataloging practices.

    Overall I found this book an easy read while presenting all the details of cataloging. As we all know the details and rules of cataloing are way too dificult, this books makes it easy to understand.

    Not a bad textbook. Offers general info on cataloging without getting overly technical. Readable, which is surprising.
