Since 1967, Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules has served the profession with highly developed content standards for cataloging the resources that come into your library. It is the one-stop gold standard. AACR2 walks you through the cataloging process of organizing catalog records using standards that apply to all metadata formats. With the process of cataloging more complex than ever, the Joint Steering Committee has come together to present a brand-new 2003 update that will equip you to catalog any type of resource, print or electronic.

What's new in the 2003 update?

  • New and updated rules as approved by the JSC in February 2003
  • A checklist of the updates
  • A complete and fully revised index

Available in a loose-leaf format, AACR2 is more user-friendly than ever. With 8.5" X 11" pages that fit a standard three-ring binder, separately numbered chapters for easy integration of updates, and a design that clearly distinguishes the rules from the examples, AACR2 is the powerhouse for resource description and access. Libraries can rely on this international set of rules for flexible, ready-to-apply standards for the fundamental work of developing resource catalogs and bibliographic descriptions. With annual update releases that easily integrate into this streamlined format, AACR2 continues as the authoritative rulebook for achieving consistency, clarity, and accessibility in catalog records for resources across all media. Binder-ready loose-leaf pages (Update pages only).
