  • 4Starting the walk
  • 5What with?
  • 6Where do we get the information from?
  • 7Does it make a difference? Compare cover and title page
  • 8 Dilemma• Is “Today vegetables . . . Tomorrow the World!” part of the title information? – AACR2 says the chief source of information for books, pamphlets and other printed information is the title page, not the cover
  • 9 So, what is the title?• The title of the book, as we would write it for a bibliography, is: – Bunnicula: A Rabbit-Tale of Mystery
  • 10So, what’s the first area?
  • 11 What’s the title proper, again?• Title proper: – The title proper is the chief name of an item and includes any alternative title, but excludes parallel titles and other title information. It is often presented on the item in a type face distinct from other information on the page. • Bibliographic Processing Cataloging Rules
  • 12So, what do we do with it? That’s easy this time!!!!
  • 13 What other title info is there?• No parallel or alternate titles• But there is a subtitle— remember, that‟s basically what catalogers call “other title information”
  • 14 Other title information• Rule 1E1: Transcribe other title information (for example, a subtitle) appearing in the chief source of information• Rule 1A1: Precede other title information by a space, colon, space ( : ) Bunnicula : a rabbit-tale of mystery
  • 15 OK—who’s responsible?• Statement of responsibility – Does the title page tell us about anyone who might have something to do with creating the work?
  • 16Rules?
  • 17 Notice something?• The rule for first statement of responsibility (1F1) doesn’t say it explicitly, but the rule for other statements (1F2) does: – “Give other statements of responsibility . . . in the form . . . in which they appear there . . .” (emphasis added).• The convention is also to do so for first statements of responsibility, so that we write: – Bunnicula : a rabbit-tale of mystery / by Deborah and James Howe ; illustrated by Alan Daniel
  • 18 Complete Area 1? Bunnicula : a rabbit- Title proper = Parallel title : Other tale of mystery / by Area 1 title information Deborah and James [GMD] / Statement of responsibility Howe ; illustrated by Alan DanielCompare BCCLS’ version: Title: Bunnicula : a rabbit tale of mystery / by Deborah and James Howe ; illustrated by Alan Daniel.

  • 25Publication area
  • 26What publication info is there here? Place of publication: New York Name of publisher: Aladdin paperbacks Date of publication: Good question!!
  • 27 What do we do about the date?• Rule 4E1: – Give the year of publication of the edition named in the edition area Therefore: 1996 Some might write: 1996, c1979
  • 28Putting it all together to this point: Title proper = Parallel Bunnicula : a rabbit-tale title : Other title of mystery / by DeborahArea 1 information [GMD] / Statement of and James Howe ; responsibility illustrated by Alan Daniel. 1st Aladdin paperbacksArea 2 Edition area ed., August, 1996.

  • 29OK, Bunnicula, what’s next?
  • 30 So, what do we do?• Rule 5B2. Extent of books, atlases, and other printed items. – Record the number of pages in the main numbered sequence – If there is more than one numbered sequence, give the number of pages in the order in which the sequence appears in each item. – Ignore unnumbered sequences and minor sequences.• For Bunnicula, there is an editor‟s note numbered xi and xii (it starts on the 11th page from the cover), and then the main story is from 3-98 (the first page of the story is on the 3rd page from the end of the note). – Some might therefore write: xii, 98 p. – Concise AACR2 would say simply: 98 p.
  • 31 31Other details• What other details? – Any illustrations? Yes, Bunnicula has several. • Rule 5C1) says: “If the bibliographic resource contains illustrations, give „ill.‟.” – Dimensions • Rule 5D 1) says: “Give the outside height in centimetres (cm.) to the next centimetre up.” – Outside height? Measure the height of the front cover. Bunnicula measures 19.5 cm., so round up to 20!
  • 32Get out your ruler! This is the vertical height!
  • 33 Punctuation (Oh, oh! Here we go!)Ignore this! It‟s only for catalog cards!Rule 0D says: “if the description is to appear in an online catalogue inwhich each area is labeled, use only the punctuation that is internal toeach area.”
  • 34What is the physical description, then?• Pagination, illustration, dimensions: – Bunnicula? xii, 98 p. : ill. ; 20 cm. Rule 5A1: Rule 5A1: “Precede the other “Precede the details (i.e., other than dimensions by a extent and dimensions) space, semicolon, space by a space, colon, space ( ; ).” ( : ).”
  • 35 Almost home!

  • 36 Is this part of a series?• Well, yes, in one sense, because there are several Bunnicula books• On the other hand, there is no specific title for the whole series – Concise AACR2 definition: Series. A group of separate bibliographic resources related to one another by the fact that each bears, in addition to its own title proper, a collective title applying to the group as a whole.
  • 37Nothing in Area 6, then? What about Area 7?
  • 38 What is “useful descriptive information”?• Frequency – if a serial, i.e. magazine, etc. • Audience – grade level, age, a specific• System requirements, etc. group, e.g. graduate – if electronic students, etc.• Nature of the item • Summary – if it is not obvious from the – This does not [should not!] rest of the description have to give away the end of• Language the story—just be enough to give a sense of what – if not English happens!• Adaption of another work • Any special information – who did it? or who did the about this specific copy original? – Location, missing parts,• Contents, cast list, credits, restrictions on use, etc. etc.
  • 39 Possible notes here?• For children’s books, especially, summaries are often provided: – Though scoffed at by Harold the dog, Chester the cat tries to warn his human family that their foundling baby bunny must be a vampire.

  • 41 Standard Number?• ISSN for serials: – Magazines, journals, newspapers, etc.• ISBN for books – This edition of Bunnicula? • ISBN 0-689-80659-0
  • 42 Remember also ISBN-13• Does the ISBN-13 have any meaning imbedded in the numbers? The five parts of an ISBN are as follows: 1. The current ISBN-13 will be prefixed by “978” 2.
