Cataloguing Work:

The objective of the catalogue is to provide nodes tool that give information about all documents available in a library. The catalogue  must be designed to meet the different approaches that readers  may make to documents. Readers  may seek  a document either through its subject or author or tide or series or any of its collaborators like translator, compiler, editor, etc. To meet this multiple approach the catalogue has to enter and describe one and the same book under each of its possible search names or headings. This multiple entry method is the basic feature of modem library cataloguing. Cataloguing work,  therefore, consists of making the necessary catalogue entries for each document. These entries may belong to different  types, each having its own specific function, to perform in the catalogue. Every such entry is to be made in strict conformity with  the rules prescribed in the catalogue code in use. The nature and content of each type  of entry may also be influenced by the physical and internal forms of the catalogue. The work of the cataloguer also includes certain jobs other than making catalogue entries, like writing of the Shelf-list Card and the Book Card. These are necessary to  complete the technical processing of a document. The whole procedure involved  in cataloguing work  can be outlined as follows: 

•  Assigning of appropriate Subject Headings 

•  Preparation of the Main Entry 

•  Preparation of the Added Entries 

•  Writing the Tracing 

•  Writing the Shelf-list Card
