Stranica 2 - ... relation of the catalog to the user. He wrote in the preface as follows: The convenience of the public is always to be set before the ease of the cataloger. In most cases they coincide. A plain rule without exceptions is not only easy for us to carry out, but easy for the public to understand and to work by. But strict consistency in a rule and uniformity in its application sometimes leads to practices which clash with the public's habitual way of looking at things. When these habits are general...
Stranica 2 - Cataloging is an art, not a science. No rules can take the place of experience and good judgment, but some of the results of experience may be best indicated by rules.
Stranica 2 - Rule 91, is entered under the first word other than an article, of its "latest corporate name, with reference from any other names by which it is known, and from the place where its headquarters are established.
Stranica 6 - Yet the day wears, And door succeeds door; I try the fresh fortune — Range the wide house from the wing to the centre. Still the same chance! she goes out as I enter. Spend my whole day in the quest, — who cares? But 'tis twilight, you see, — with such suites to explore, Such closets to search, such alcoves to importune!
Stranica 2 - In the preface to this work is the following justification of the rules for corporate entry: „While, open to the charge of inconsistency it is the opinion of the Committee that the rules for societies and institutions, as they now stand, will serve to bring the vast majority of these bodies under the heading where they are most likely to be looked for in English and American libraries." Mr. Cutter, in his Rules for a dictionary catalog, 4th edition, expresses the opinion that „The convenience...
Stranica 2 - ... baffling undertaking; the entry should be concise for the convenience of the reader, yet adequately supplied with notes for the service of the librarian. There are three distinct methods in general use for recording the publications of corporate bodies: 1st, entry under title, as: Verhandlungen der Deutschen physikalischen Gesellschaft, Berlin; this is the customary usage of continental Europe in its bibliographies and trade catalogues; it is frequently modified by printing the significant word...
Stranica 1 - Is it by accident that the word for "society" is feminine in most languages? for societies are full of inconsistencies; they change their names ; they are reserved about the date of their birth ! Like the elusive lady of Browning's poem: Still the same chance ! she goes out as I enter, Spend the whole day in the quest, — who cares ? The quest! That is what makes the cataloguing of serials a great adventure. However exasperated we may be with the incessant changes incident to works of this nature,...
Stranica 3 - ... from any other name by which it is known, and from the name of the place where its headquarters are established. eg Deutsche physikalische Gesellschaft, Berlin. with references from Physikalische Gesellschaft zu Berlin. Berlin. Physikalische Gesellschaft. Berlin. Deutsche physikalische Gesellschaft. Society of oriental research, Chicago. with reference from Chicago. Society of oriental research. The argument for entry under the latest name is, that societies and their publications are known to...
Stranica 6 - ... preserved, the records must be kept clear, the tangled threads of changing titles must be patiently straightened out; but to the thoughtful person it is an inspiring task, for enfolded in those pages which, perchance, few but the cataloguer will ever see in their unbroken sequence, is the history of modern civilization, the written result of organized human effort, the panorama of life itself. The cataloguing of it is not, after all, a science, but an art — a plastic art, if you will — and...
Stranica 4 - In 1906, following the Exposition coloniale de Marseille, there was a complete reorganization of the institute and museum by the Chambre de commerce de Marseille, and the various activities which up to that time had been carried on in different places, were centralized. The year 1906 is therefore considered the date of founding of the Institut colonial. (Continued on next card) 25-15015 Marseille. Musee colonial. (Card 2) The Musee colonial has had an uninterrupted existence since 1893, and has been...
