Skeleton Entries for a Dictionary Catalogue 

One of the meanings for the word "skeleton" is a frame or an outline. In that sense, we now try to see the frame of a main Entry and an Added Entry for a dictionary catalogue according to AACR - 2R, making a provision for the various data elements and the relevant punctuation.

The above skeleton main entry is for all types of documents. The main entry heading can be for a person or author or corporate body or. sometimes for a title according to the rules prescribed for different types of works in AACR-2R. When it is the name of a person we give the name as follows: Surname, other names, year of birth-year of death. If the main line is not sufficient to record this information we will continue the main entry heading after leaving two letter spaces from the second indention. This imaginary line which is 16 spaces from left margin(edge) of the card is known as third indention (see the illustration below). This line is not shown in a catalogue card drawn with indentions. In the tracing section, in between the items numbered in Arabic numerals and in Roman numerals two letter spaces are to be left.
