An electronic version of AACR2 -- AACR2-e -- will be available this summer. The electronic version of the text will now include all revisions through 1997. In addition, a new print version of the text, based on this electronic file, will be available later this summer. ALA Editions will license rights to the electronic file to third party vendors and consortia so that catalogers can access the rules electronically for use in their local environments. For more information on AACR2-e consult the ALA web site at URL: http://www.ala.org/market/books/technical.html
On April 28, 1998, ALA Editions signed an agreement with the Cataloging Distribution Service (CDS) of the Library of Congress to incorporate the electronic file of the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, second edition, 1988 revision, into LC's Cataloger's Desktop, CDS's one-disc CD-ROM cataloging tool.
AACR2-e will first appear in Cataloger's Desktop in the fourth quarter of 1998. With the inclusion of AACR2-e, catalogers will have access to the cataloging rules, any corresponding LCRI, and the MARC formats in a single electronic source.
The American Library Association will be offering demos of its new AACR2-e CD-ROM at its Annual Convention in Washington, D.C. Demos will be held on Saturday, June 27, from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Renaissance Center LL 7, and Sunday, June 28, from 8:00-9:00 a.m. in the Renaissance Center, LL 10.
This new CD-ROM, which will be available from ALA Editions in September 1998, features the complete authorized cataloging rules with all rule revisions approved by JSC. AACR2-e uses the popular Folio VIEWS hypertext software, which also supports the Library of Congress Cataloger's Desktop and Classification Plus.
All catalogers and other interested parties are welcome and encouraged to attend this informative session! For more information, please contact Mary Huchting at 800-545-2433, ext. 5418.
A draft revision of subclass HM (Sociology) of the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) has been posted on the Cataloging Policy and Support Office (CPSO) home page. This initial draft was prepared by James E. McGovern, senior subject cataloger on the Political Science/Sociology/Anthropology team, working on special assignment to CPSO. When approved and implemented, this revision will replace the existing numbers HM1-299, which will no longer be used. Interested users of LCC are invited to review and offer suggestions or comments on this initial draft by July 31, 1998. A proposed final draft will be published for further comment in the Autumn 1998 issue of Cataloging Service Bulletin. The draft is located at URL: http://lcweb.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/hm.html
