Trainer Note: This slide depicts how these types of resources are represented in AACR2. For electronic resources, the electronic aspects are still covered by the rules in chapter 9, while the continuing aspects are now covered by the rules in chapter 12. Catalogers of electronic integrating resources will need use both chapters for description. Trainer Instructions: Give participates a few examples of databases or websites, and ask them where to look for the rules in AACR2 for cataloging these resources.
Transcript of "Christopher Thomas: Integrating resources"
Integrating resources Christopher Thomas
AACR2 definition <ul>An integrating resource is “a bibliographic resource that is added to or changed by means of updates that do not remain discrete and are integrated into the whole. Integrating resources can be finite or continuing”. </ul>
RDA definition A resource that is added to or changed by means of updates that do not remain discrete and are integrated into the whole. An integrating resource may be tangible (e.g., a loose-leaf manual that is updated by means of replacement pages) or intangible (e.g., a Web site that is updated either continuously or on a cyclical basis).
Example: Updating loose-leaf Corporate Legal Compliance Handbook, Second Edition Edited by: Theodore L. Banks, Frederick Z. Banks October 2010, ISBN 0735593817
Example: Updating database <ul>California Bill Information http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/bilinfo.html </ul>
Example: Updating web site <ul>Doing business http://www.doingbusiness.org/ </ul>
Integrating resources are not: <ul><li>Loose leaf or online publications which are not updated (monographs, e-books)
Loose leaf publications with supplements that remain discrete
Loose leaf or publications which meet the definition of serials (successive issues remain discrete) </li></ul>
Representation of Bibliographic Resources in AACR2 1- Finite resources Monographs Multi-parts Serials Parts remain discrete Integrating resources Updates do not remain discrete Continuing resources
Early loose-leaf publications <ul><li>Corporation Trust Company's
Invention of loose-leaf <ul>Richard Prentice Ettinger, 1913 Tax book was outdated by the time it was printed. Loose-leaf was invented to allow for updates reflecting changes in tax law. Source: Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loose_leaf </ul>
Loose-leaf in law libraries <ul><li>The loose-leaf format began with legal publications because of the need for frequent updates
Loose-leaf publications are especially important for tax law, labor law, and environmental law </li></ul>
Electronic resources <ul><li>Most web sites are integrating resources
Some works were published as serials in print but became integrating publications online (e.g. directories)
Growth of the WWW in the 1990s brought many new legal and non-legal integrating publications </li></ul>
Cataloging prior to 2002 <ul><li>Loose-leaf publications and updating websites were cataloged as monographs (BLvl=m) according to AACR2 chapter 2 (books)
Adele Hallam's Cataloging rules for the description of looseleaf publications provided additional guidance </li></ul>
Cataloging in 2002 and after <ul><li>AACR2 chapter 12 was renamed continuing resources, including serials and integrating resources
Different rules for transcribing title, dates, and other descriptive info.
Use of 362, 780, 785, and other fields previously used primarily for serials </li></ul>
