Guidelines to Cataloguers 

  1. The information furnished in the catalogue entries should be accurate. Generally, the title page is the chief source for cataloguing information. The information taken from the title page should be correctly transcribed. Sometimes, the information contained in the overflow of the title page such as the preface, foreword, table of contents, introduction and the body of the text, etc. is also utilised for cataloging purposes. Now-a-days this information is given on the back of title page. 
  2. The information contained in the library catalogue entries should be sufficient to provide access points from such aspects as the author, title, subject, names of other collaborators, name of the series, etc. for every document. This is necessary to prepare lists of reading materials for library users. 
  3. Catalogues should always endeavour to keep the library catalogues up-to date. To achieve this objective, it is imperative that the processing aspects pertaining to filing of the catalogue entries, etc. should be accomplished expeditiously. 

Arrangement and pattern of entries in the catalogues should be such that a reader is able to comprehend them easily and be able to use the catalogue without much difficulty. 

Salient features of the catalogues and the methods of finding information from it should be prominently displayed by means of guide.
