Cataloging Library Resources

An Introduction

While there are many cataloging texts, very few are written specifically for library support staff. This is the one and only book purposefully aligned with the new American Library Association – Library Support Staff Certification (LSSC) competency standards for Cataloging and Classification. Written in clear language by someone who teaches cataloging in a library support staff program and featuring practical examples, Cataloging Library Resources: An Introduction will help library support staff become effective catalogers. Other books on this topic are written for professional librarians rather than support staff. And although 85% of library support staff do not hold professional degrees, many are expected to do the complex and technical work of catalogers. This book provides many examples that support staff can use to learn how to catalog all types of library print, media, and digital materials using the most up-to-date Library of Congress standards. Using this handbook as a guide, readers will be able to perform the ALA-LSSC cataloging and classification competencies and the new RDA, FRBR, and BIBFRAME standards listed below: • Apply and manage the appropriate processes, computer technology, and equipment for cataloging and classification. • Apply principles of Resource Description and Access (RDA) and the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) when creating cataloging records. • Apply principles of the Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) and utilize the BIBFRAME model to create cataloging records. • Use the basic cataloging and classification tools, both print and online, including bibliographic utilities and format standards. • Understand the value of authority control and its basic principles, and can identify and apply appropriate access points for personal names, corporate bodies, series, and subjects. • Explain the value and advantages of cooperative or collaborative cataloging practices to enhance services. • Know the basics of standard metadata formats and cataloging rules to select, review, and edit catalog records, and to generate metadata in various formats. • And more!

Cataloging and Classification

An Introduction

The fourth edition of the late Lois Mai Chan's classic Cataloging and Classification covers the analysis and representation of methods used in describing, organizing, and providing access to resources made available in or through libraries. Completely updated to incorporate the changes that have occurred during the interval between the third and fourth editions, this book is the standard text for the teaching and understanding of cataloging and classification.

This book is the standard text for the teaching and understanding of cataloging and classification.

Advanced Calculus

An Introduction to Mathematical Analysis

This book is an introduction to mathematical analysis (i.e real analysis) at a fairly elementary level. A great (unusual) emphasis is given to the construction of rational and then of real numbers, using the method of equivalence classes and of Cauchy sequences. The text includes the usual presentation of: sequences of real numbers, infinite numerical series, continuous functions, derivatives and Riemann-Darboux integration. There are also two “special” sections: on convex functions and on metric spaces, as well as an elementary appendix on Logic, Set Theory and Functions. We insist on a rigorous presentation throughout in the framework of the classical, standard, analysis. Contents: NumbersSequences of Real NumbersInfinite Numerical SeriesContinuous FunctionsDerivativesConvex FunctionsMetric SpacesIntegrationIndexIndex of NotationsAppendix (Logic, Set Theory and Functions)Bibliography Readership: Undergraduate students of calculus and real analysis. keywords:Numbers;Sequences;Series;Continuous Functions;Derivatives;Convex Functions;Metric Spaces;Integration

Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations:An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers

An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers

This is a thoroughly updated and expanded 4th edition of the classic text Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations by Dominic Jordan and Peter Smith. Including numerous worked examples and diagrams, further exercises have been incorporated into the text and answers are provided at the back of the book. Topics include phase plane analysis, nonlinear damping, small parameter expansions and singular perturbations, stability, Liapunov methods, Poincare sequences, homoclinicbifurcation and Liapunov exponents.Over 500 end-of-chapter problems are also included and as an additional resource fully-worked solutions to these are provided in the accompanying text Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations: Problems and Solutions, (OUP, 2007).Both texts cover a wide variety of applications whilst keeping mathematical prequisites to a minimum making these an ideal resource for students and lecturers in engineering, mathematics and the sciences.

Linear Programming in Industry

Theory and Applications. An Introduction

The present volume is intended to serve a twofold purpose. First, it provides a university text of Linear Programming for students of economics or operations research interested in the theory of production and cost and its practical applications; secondly, it is the author's hope that engineers, business executives, managers, and others responsible for the organization and planning of industrial operations may find the book useful as an introduction to Linear Programming methods and techniques. Despite the different backgrounds of these categories of potential readerR, their respective fields overlap to a considerable extent; both are concerned with economic optimization problems, and the use of Linear Programming to problems of production planning is simply applied theory of production. The non-economist reader may, but should not, pass over Chapter IV in which the linear production model is linked up with the economic theory of production. Without being an advanced text, the book aims at covering enough ground to make the reader capable of detecting, formulating, and solving such linear planning problems as he may encounter within his particular field. No heavy demands are made on the reader's mathematical profi ciency; except for the proofs in the Appendix-which may be skipped if desired-the mathematical exposition is purely elementary, involving only simple linear relations. In the author's experience, the pedagogical advantages of thi;:; approach, as compared with the use of matrix algebra, amply justify the sacrifice of mathematical elegance and typographical simplicity, particularly in explaining the simplex method.

The present volume is intended to serve a twofold purpose.

Linear Programming

An Introduction with Applications

Includes one IBM/PC floppy disk. System Requirements: Monochrome monitors, IBM-compatible machines, minimum: 286 IBM, DOS 2.0 or higher. This book gives a complete, concise introduction to the theory and applications of linear programming. It emphasizes the practical applications of mathematics, and makes the subject more accessible to individuals with varying mathematical abilities. It is one of the first rigorous linear programming texts that does not require linear algebra as a prerequisite. In addition, this text contains a floppy disk containing the program SIMPLEX, designed to help students solve problems using the computer. Key Features * Less rigorous mathematically - will appeal to individuals with varying mathematical abilities * Includes a floppy disk containing the program SIMPLEX and an appendix to help students solve problems using the computer * Includes chapters on network analysis and dynamic programming - topics of great interest to business majors and industrial engineers * Includes modem applications - selected computer programs for solving various max/min applications
