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.

Mutative Media

Communication Technologies and Power Relations in the Past, Present, and Futures

Mutative Media is a sweeping examination of how communication technologies have contributed to changes in people’s thoughts and actions, and thus in the power structures of societies, in the past, at present, and in four alternative futures. We start by surveying what is generally known about the emergence of human language and speech that has enabled humans to extend their organizing abilities beyond that of other hominids. We then review research on the emergence of signs, symbols, and eventually writing, which led to new ways of thinking, acting, and organizing in scribal societies and vastly extended human influence globally. We consider the impact of the printing press in Europe, the Middle East, China, and Korea that led to various ways of thinking and organizing in modern societies, and conclude our historical survey with a discussion of the emergence and impact of electric and electronic communication technologies from the nineteenth century to the present. After a brief overview of what “futures studies” is and is not, based on our extensive experience in the field, we present four generic alternative futures, and discuss a prototype of a hybrid, mixed-reality game designed to enable players to experience the power and potential of new communication technologies within four very different environments and conditions. We think you will be intrigued by our surprising findings and what they may mean for future generations!
