The future of the library catalogue

Sally Chambers, editor

ISBN: 978-1-85604-716-6

Will there be a library catalogue in the future and, if so, what will it look like?

In the last 25 years, the library catalogue has undergone an evolution, from card catalogues to OPACs, discovery systems and even linked data applications making library bibliographic data accessible on the web. At the same time, users expectations of what catalogues will be able to offer in the way of discovery have never been higher.

This groundbreaking edited collection brings together some of the foremost international cataloguing practitioners and thought leaders, including Lorcan Dempsey, Emmanuelle Bermès, Marshall Breeding and Karen Calhoun, to provide an overview of the current state of the art of the library catalogue and look ahead to see what the library catalogue might become.

Practical projects and cutting edge concepts are showcased in discussions of linked data and the Semantic Web, user expectations and needs, bibliographic control, the FRBRization of the catalogue, innovations in search and retrieval, next-generation discovery products and mobile catalogues.


Cataloguers and metadata specialists, library adminstrators and managers responsible for planning and strategy, systems librarians, user services managers, electronic resources librarians, and digital library project managers, students on cataloguing, information management and digital library courses.

"What is the state of the library catalogue now, and what might it become in the future? Authors of this excellent book answer those questions through theoretical discussions and practical examples of what have been done by libraries. Written by an international team of library and information professionals, Catalogue 2.0 does not disappoint."
- Collection Management

"This book presents complex theoretical concepts well. It provides practical examples and case studies too. In my opinion it shows the Library Catalogue is alive and well – but is also evolving as the technological landscape and the needs and wishes of users evolve. I think it is essential reading and the broad range of topics covered give a good overview of the future of the catalogue."
