Although the old fashioned card catalog is/was easily updated, the problem is/was in typing all of the separate cards for the various entries (author, title, etc.).
True
"Key words" are a relatively new method of searching devised with the advent of computerization.
False
In most card catalogs and online databases, the bibliographic record supplies the physical and intellectual description of the item and its location in the collection.
True
Today the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR) is the publication that catalogers consult for standard cataloging rules to create bibliographic records.
True
Very few library functions (such as cataloging) were affected by computerization.
False
The reason that CIP information is often erroneous is due to changes between the time the book is cataloged and when it is actually published.
True
When the MARC format was developed, it was based on descriptive cataloging of books. Now the library field has the challenge of organizing and describing metadata.
True
According to Taylor , the "information package" is the item being described, be it a book, videotape, or a web site.
True
Although the Library of Congress provides hundreds of millions of cataloging records at no cost, there are items in a school library collection that cannot be located in the LC catalog.
True
Because CIP information is created before an item is published, there may be errors in the cataloging.
True
Copy catalogers should know about free and fee-based databases available because all catalogers have the need for assistance.
True
Although there are several fee-based programs to assist catalogers, the best one for school media centers is the OCLC database.
False
Because no one database is perfect for all needs, we should look at more than just one. Also, we must always examine the bib records for accuracy and completeness.
True
There are many sites on the Internet that supply quality cataloging at no cost.
True
Copy cataloging allows catalogers to use records from other libraries. When we use these other records, we must accept them as they are and make no changes.
False
The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has developed a standard communications protocol called Z39.50 (pronounced "zee-thirty-nine-dot-fifty"). Because of this protocol, it is possible to search any Internet library database using familiar commands and to retrieve and download records belonging to that library.
True
One distinctive feature of the following online catalogs -- Access Pennsylvania and CowlNet -- is that they are searchable by Sears subject headings.
True
It may be practical for small libraries to use a book catalog or a card catalog, but for larger libraries, the online catalog is the best for their purposes.
True
The chief source of information for a DVD is the container if the title screen and/or label are missing.
True
MARC 21 -- despite complaints that it is archaic -- is the standard format used today for organizing data.
True
The information in Area 1 corresponds to information recorded in only the 245 tag.
False
When we refer to Area 4 as "Imprint," we recognize this to be the same as "Publication, Distribution, etc."
True
ISBNs are located in the Standard Numbers area. A MARC record may contain more than one ISBN based on different formats of the item.
True
"Signposts" may be in text format or in MARC tag format.
True
If a community college were to publish a college catalog, the main entry would be a corporate main entry under the name of the community college.
True
Using the MARC standard prevents duplication of work and allows libraries to better share bibliographic resources and to acquire data that is predictable and reliable.
True
When a book has an author and an illustrator (two different people), record the illustrator as an added entry.
True
When there are five (5) authors responsible for a work, list the first named author as the personal main entry.
False
There is only one main entry, and it is the most important heading. All of the other headings (access points) are added entries.
True
Subfield codes are one lowercase letter (occasionally a number) preceded by a delimiter.
True
As copy cataloging and purchased cataloging take the place of original cataloging, Sears headings will probably fall into disuse.
True
If a book is an autobiography, the MARC record will have a 600 tag for the personal name of the author.
True
If "$2 gsafd" is recorded in the subject heading field, this subject heading is describing a fiction item.
True
References to and from similar subject headings are very much the same in Sears as in LCSH.
True
Subject headings are typically single-word entries used to convey a concept or topic.
True
Topical subject headings are located in the 651 tag in MARC format.
False
When the second indicator value is "7" in 6XX tags, this means that the subject headings are from LCSH.
False
Controlled vocabularies of subject terms are known as subject headings. The two most common lists of subject headings used worldwide are the LCSH and Sears.
True
The benefit of controlled vocabulary searching is that all items with the same subject heading will be retrieved.
True
Keyword searching is just as precise as searching by subject headings.
False
The Library of Congress Annotated Card headings were created to meet the needs of cataloging children's materials. LC/AC headings are more general and less technical than LCSH.
True
It is probably safe to say that school libraries have both LCSH and Sears subject headings in their library catalogs.
True
If a cataloger does not know the proper form of a person's name, the cataloger should make up a name entry as best as he/she can.
False
Subdivisions of subjects in MARC records use subfields such as $v and $x. If a librarian is subdividing a subject according to the type/form of the publication (for example: "Fiction" or "Juvenile literature"), he/she should use the $v subfield.
True
Authority control refers to the linking of various forms of a name or subject heading. "See" and "See also" references make these linkages.
True
All fiction books, regardless of language or nationality, must be shelved together.
False
Although an item may have several subject headings, the choice of the classification number actually places the item on the shelf.
True
Books or other library materials with similar Dewey Decimal numbers are about similar subjects.
True
In the United States, only 45% of all school and public libraries use the DDC.
False
Library of Congress call numbers begin with numbers, followed by letters.
False
The DDC lists a specific geographical number for each state in the United States.
True
The more complex a DDC number, the more specialized the topic.

False
The DDC lists a specific geographical number for each state in the United States.
True
The more complex a DDC number, the more specialized the topic.
True
Area 5, Physical Description, is concerned with describing the "extent" of the item. If there are no page numbers in a children's picture book, one option is to record the number of volumes and note that it is unpaged.
False
Automated systems automatically enclose the series statement in parentheses.
False
"Imprint" is a term used for the publishing information located in tag 260.
False
Part of the "extent" of item of an audiocassette or a DVD is the running time. If the time given on the item or the container is approximate, record that running time preceded by the abbreviation "ca."
False
A "display constant" is the information the computer inserts into the record automatically that will show up in the public record of the item.
False
The authors recommend that instead of using the various 5XX tags for specific notes, that librarians make it easy on themselves and use the 500 tag for all notes.
False
There are several considerations in the decision to create a new bib record. In general, if there is a change in publisher, this constitutes a different edition and requires a new record.
False
With an integrated system all function modules share a common bibliographic database.
False
Maintaining a collection of electronic resources takes no more time than maintaining a book collection.
False
When cataloging the parent site in Internet resources, use the home screen as the chief source of information.
False
Although thought archaic by today's cataloging theoreticians, the MARC record has a field for electronic links to Internet sites. The authors, however, believe that school librarians are too busy to create those links for their users.
False
