CILIP is a library and information association that helps members develop their skills, build successful careers and deliver high quality information and library services. Believing that knowledge and skills are the building blocks of a successful economy, equal society and fulfilling life, CILIP works to run an effective professional association that improves library and information services, develops members’ expertise and represents the sector.
One of their many resources is the Catalogue & Index periodical that has been published since 1966. The varied subjects focus on the organization of knowledge to enable resource discovery and collection management, including articles on cataloging, indexing, metadata, as well as national and international standards and formats.
The theme of their September issue is indexing, giving a taste of the different ways indexing is used in various parts of the information profession. Access Innovations’ Bob Kasenchak is featured in this issue with his article titled, “Methodologies for classifying special collections and repositories for retrieval and discovery.”
