- Brings together in one place all of the rules and practices necessary to complete the cataloging process for a serial. Because it was developed by catalogers, it's organized in a format that follows the order in which cataloging decisions are likely to be made when cataloging from an online workform. The CONSER Cataloging Manual is an essential companion to the CONSER Editing Guide and the most authoritative word on serials cataloging. It can be used by both beginning and experienced catalogers--it's a training tool and reference guide. It features the step-by-step process of cataloging a serial with reference to pertinent AACR2 rules and LC rule interpretations and explanations of LC oral tradition relating to serials.
