Scheschy. University of Nevada, Reno.
ABSTRACT. The importance to catalogers of having local procedures that are readily available, current, and accurate cannot be overemphasized. By using web technology, procedures are easily updated, broadly available, searchable through powerful Web search engines, and capable of linking directly to related resources. Catalogers' skills in organization and classification provide a good foundation for learning the basics of Web creation. This article presents some guidelines dealing with the logical organization of procedures on the Web, along with the use of appropriate language and consistent design.

Added Access Points in Thesis Cataloging: Enhancing Public Service Without
Running Athwart Input Standards. By Kay E. Lowell. University of
Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colorado.
ABSTRACT. Library users often need to search for locally-produced dissertations and theses by access points, such as advisor or department of origin, that have not been supported in the cataloging rules or USMARC bibliographic format. Libraries needing to provide such non-conventional access were forced to use standard fields in unconventional ways. USMARC format integration and changes in OCLC fields have provided opportunities for libraries to bring local practice into conformity with AACR2R and OCLC standards, while retaining valuable local access points. This paper reviews the literature of thesis cataloging and uses the evolution of local policies at the University of Northern Colorado Libraries to suggest possible directions for changes in cataloging practice.
