Library Journal Review

Maxwell's (special collections and formats catalog dept., Brigham Young Univ.; Maxwell's Guide to Authority Work) handbook is intended to help practitioners understand RDA as well as to learn how to apply the rules in conjunction with MARC21. Through full and numerous cataloging examples, the author covers FRBR (functional requirements for bibliographic records) basics and how to record the attributes for entities such as manifestations, items, persons, corporate bodies, places, expressions, and works. The examples are not limited to just the print format but also include electronic materials, music, series, and maps. Supplementary material consists of 14 appendixes such as "Series Authority Records," "Printed Books and Sheets," "Notated Music," "Audio Recordings," "Moving Image Resources," and "Digital Resources." This very comprehensive resource is designed to be used as a supplement to, not a substitute for, RDA: Resource Description and Access Print (ALA Editions). VERDICT An essential tool for catalogers in all libraries and cataloging instructors.-Susan E. Ketcham, Long Island Univ. Post Lib., Brookville, NY (c) Copyright 2014.
