Analytical Entries 

Sometimes we may wish to draw the attention of a library user to a part or parts of a book which we feel may otherwise escape the attention of the user. A catalogue entry can help in such situations. On such occasions we are analysing the contents of the work. Analysis, AACR-2 observes, "is the process of preparing a bibliographic record that describes a part or parts of a larger item". And, glossary in AACR-2 defines an Analytical Entry as "An entry for a part of an item for which a comprehensive entry has been made".
