Proliferating Guidelines: A History and Analysis of teh Cataloging of Electronic Resources
Amy Weiss <p>LRTS, vol. 47, no. 4, October 2003, pp. 171-187</p>
In her article, Amy Weiss traces and evaluates the vigorous, on-going and occasionally frustrating efforts made by the library community over the past three decades to create standards and codes for the cataloging of electronic resources. She describes and unravels the complex history of the continuous and often vain attempts to provide stable guidelines for the cataloging of objects that are constantly changing. This article will provide very useful insights both for the current practitioners and for future historians.
