Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln


Date of this Version





The paper discusses the current trends in cataloging and classification of library materials in the information and communication technology era. There is outstanding evidence that ICT has improved cataloging activities, but has at the same time given rise to some issues of concern to the library, librarian, and the users. Such defined concerns include a threat to the cataloguer's role, competencies needed, facilities, training, software, etc. Suggestions given on how to derive maximum benefits include capacity building through self-development, curriculum review, constant power supply, and bibliographic instructions for regular users.
