Publisher's Synopsis

Cataloguing has always produced a catalogue, while the creation of metadata has produced the metadata of given resources. However, in this digital age, the two are more connected than ever. A catalogue is made up of metadata that can be searched, identified, structured and selected. This then means the metadata creation process is adopted as a part of cataloguing.

From Cataloguing to Metadata Creation is a cultural and methodological introduction to the evolution of cataloguing towards the metadata creation process in the digital era. It is a journey through the founding principles and the objectives of the 'information organisation' service that libraries offer. The book aims to outline the new library context, highlighting continuities and innovations compared to traditional cataloguing and intends to trace the path from traditional cataloguing to the new metadata creation process.
