Cataloging Sound Recordings

A Manual with Examples

At last--a manual that takes the chore out of cataloging sound recordings! The author clarifies the AACR2 rules (Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, 2nd edition) and literally steps through the thought process used in cataloging a sound recording, beginning with what to use as the source for the title, through the physical description and series information. All the examples of catalog cards presented, ranging from the full gamut of 20th century music to spoken records and compact discs, show the full level of descriptive cataloging. The appendixes make this a practical worker s manual; they include order and content of cataloging notes, order of parts in a uniform title, a glossary of musical terms and acronyms, a list of basic reference books and thematic indexes, a complete set of catalog cards, and the Library of Congress rule interpretations for sound recordings. The detailed indexes enhance this important book s utility."

Cooperative Cataloging

Past, Present, and Future

Here is an in-depth look at the colorful past, controversial present, and exciting and challenging future of cooperative cataloging. Over the years, librarians have struggled to develop a successful cooperative cataloging system that catalogs bibliographic items through the joint action of a group of independent libraries and makes bibliographic records accessible to both group members and nonparticipating libraries. Cooperative Cataloging chronicles the programs that have been tried and helps readers understand the importance of cooperative cataloging, its strengths and weaknesses, and its promise for the future. The chapters in Cooperative Cataloging reflect the major issues discussed by the newly formed Cooperative Cataloging Council. Its goals are to provide access to materials in libraries'collections, to increase the availability of unique records created under mutually acceptable standards, and to provide leadership in the information community. Some of the important cooperative cataloging efforts covered in this book include: the National Coordinating Cataloging Program (NCCP) cooperative cataloging outside the United States CONSER the National Coordinated Cataloging Operation (NACO) the United States Newspaper Program cooperative cataloging microform sets Catalogers, library administrators, technical services administrators, and library school students will gain a better understanding of the past from this comprehensive historical perspective on cooperative cataloging. They will also benefit from discussions of current programs and valuable suggestions for improving libraries'ability to provide bibliographic access to information resources. Cooperative Cataloging helps information professionals lay a solid foundation for successful cooperative cataloging in the future.

The Routledge Guide to Modern English Writing

Britain and Ireland

In 1963 President John F. Kennedy was shot, Sylvia Plath published The Bell Jar, and the Beatles were in their prime. This was a changing world, which British and Irish writers both contributed to and reflected in drama, poetry and prose. The Routledge Guide to Modern English Writing tells the story of British and Irish writing from 1963 to the present. From the first performance of Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead in the 1960s to lad novels and Chick Lit in the twenty-first century, the authors guide the reader through the major writers, genres and developments in English writing over the past forty years. Providing an in-depth overview of the main genres and extensive treatment of a wide range of writers including Philip Larkin, Ted Hughes, Angela Carter, Benjamin Zephaniah and Nick Hornby, this highly readable handbook also offers notes on language issues, quotations from selected works, a timeline and a guide to other works. Written by the authors of The Routledge History of Literature in English (second edition, 2001), The Routledge Guide to Modern English Writing is essential reading for all readers of contemporary writing.

Brain and Perception

Holonomy and Structure in Figural Processing

Comprehensively addressing the development of thinking from a wide variety of perspectives, this volume presents original work from cognitive psychologists, curriculum specialists, federal government and business leaders, politicians, educational theorists, and other prominent figures specializing in this complex field. These experts provide directives for teacher education, textbook development, classroom activities, administrative policies, publication procedures, business connections, community education strategies, and whole school projects as sample plans of action. Designed to spark adoptions of the solutions it proposes, this book suggests significant steps that can be taken to move toward more advanced thinking instruction in our educational systems.

SUMMARY The facts of optical processing by lens and pupil are agreed upon
and therefore make a good starting point for an examination of the perceptual
process. Distinguishing between processing performed by the optics of the eye
from that performed by the retina allows for the occurrence of a moving optical
image, that is, an optical flow. This flow is not two-dimensional, but richly
multidimensional. The multidimensionality is complemented by the richness of

Brain and Behaviour

Critical Concepts in Psychology

The collection of articles presented in these volumes represents an individual's
choice of important papers published in English (or translated) on the
relationship between brain and behaviour since the time of Broca. It is with Broca
that the collection begins. In fact, his observations in 1861 set the scene for the
first section of the collection. The first section is called Modular Function and it
concerns the localisation of specific aspects of behaviour to circumscribed sites
in the brain.

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Human Communication

This is a book about speech and language. It is primarily intended for those interested in speech and its neurophysiological bases: phoneticians, linguists, educators, speech therapists, psychologists, and neuroscientists. Although speech and language are its central topic, it provides information about related topics as well (e.g. structure and functioning of the central nervous system, research methods in neuroscience, theories and models of speech production and perception, learning, and memory). Data on clinical populations are given in parallel with studies of healthy subjects because such comparisons can give a better understanding of intact and disordered speech and language functions. There is a review of literature (more than 600 sources) and research results covering areas such as neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, development of the nervous system, sex differences, history of neurolinguistics, behavioral, neuroimaging and other research methods in neuroscience, linguistics and psychology, theories and models of the nervous system function including speech and language processing, kinds of memory and learning and their neural substrates, critical periods, various aspects of normal speech and language processes (e.g. phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, reading), bilingualism, speech and language disorders, and many others. Newcomers to the field of neurolinguistics will find it as readable as professionals will because it is organized in a way that gives the readers flexibility and an individual approach to the text. The language is simple but all the technical terms are provided, explained, and illustrated. A comprehensive glossary provides additional information.

In the past several decades we have seen the coming together of the “hard”
sciences, such as neurology, molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, and
physics with the fields such as psychology, linguistics, and phonetics and speech
communication. This welcome trend is manifested not just in the emergence of
new terms (e.g., neurolinguistics, biopsychology, cognitive neuroscience, etc.)
but, what is more important, in increasing interest, understanding, appreciation,
