Booklist Review

For the nonprofessional who faces organizing a library collection, Hoffman's guide to simplified cataloging practice will be a great help. Although the Anglo-American rules are bent a bit and sometimes ignored altogether, this handbook lays out the options of collection organization clearly and in everyday language. Hoffman's approach utilizes title main entry, and the author carefully explains the advantages and disadvantages of his system. Other basic information, from types of publications to production of catalog cards on word processors, is also well covered. Index.
