Take your cataloging skills to the next level!
Cataloging & Classification Quarterly provides an effective international forum for information and discussion in the field of bibliographic organization. This highly respected journal considers the full spectrum of creation, content, management, use, and usability of bibliographic records, including the principles, functions, and techniques of descriptive cataloging; the wide range of methods of subject analysis and classification; provision of access for all formats of materials; and policies, planning, and issues connected to the effective use of bibliographic data in modern society.
The journal deals with the historic setting as well as with the contemporary, and with theory and scholarly research as well as with practical applications. In a rapidly changing field, it seeks out and fosters new developments in the transition to new forms of bibliographic control and encourages the innovative and the nontraditional. The computer and other modern technology are considered from the point of view of creators and users of bibliographic records rather than from that of technicians.

It deals with both general and specific aspects of cataloging and classification for all forms of library materials in all types of collections. For library school faculty, it provides an outlet for research publication as well as source materials for students. For the cataloger, the journal provides both theoretical background and potential solutions to current problems. For the public services librarian, there are discussions of bibliographic records in actual use and of the importance of feedback from the user to the creator of cataloging systems. For the administrator, it explores the complex elements in the library organization.
Cataloging & Classification Quarterly emphasizes full-length research and review articles, descriptions of new programs and technology relevant to cataloging and classification, considered speculative articles on improved methods of bibliographic control for the future, and solicited book reviews.
