    Pretty much the entire time while I was reading this, I felt simultaneously ecstatic and very sad. It should be required reading for anyone who has an MLS or is planning to get one, because it illustrates so well how cataloging is an integral part of libraries and library work and why people should care and get over the stereotypes about catalogers. I'm gonna buy it.

    pg. 5, Sandy Berman:"Maudlin as it may sound, I actually felt almost every day, as a cataloger, that I was liberating library books and audiovisual materials, as well as the information and ideas they contained, by crafting bibliographic records that included clarifying (and searchable) notes, generous topical and other access points no arcane or intimidating abbreviations, and subject headings formulated in both familiar and unbiased language, and representing contemporary themes and events in [...]

    The collection of essays in Radical Cataloging cover a wide range of issue in the cataloging world, and it's not the boring book most non-catalogers might assume it is - but be warned that unless you already understand LCSH, NAR, and the like you probably won't understand much of what you'll find here.Read more at;bilinguallibrarian/200

    From this review in TechKNOW Volume 14, Issue 2, August 2008:librarynt/page/11226"If you're looking for a basic book about cataloging then this is not the book. If you're looking for a fearless yet hopeful assessment of the cataloging industry from a decidedly liberal perspective, then this is the book."

    A bit dated but still relevant and interesting not just to gross dedicated cataloguers like myself, toiling away in our troll caves creating sublimely perfect original records and cursing the many faulty pre-existing records we encounter, but to any librarian with an interest in the bones of their catalog and the controversies that are embedded in their creation.

    If you're interested in cataloging, this is a must-read. I particularly loved the chapters on what's wrong at the LC, and at OCLC. If you can get your hands on those two chapters, librarians, you should.

    I didn't read them all, but was recommended to check out Christopher Walker's essay on subject headings. Laugh out loud funny, in between nodding my head in agreement and shaking my head in despair. If you're a cataloguer you will enjoy it

    i am not sure i'm going to end up reading all of the essays in this book, just because i am unfortunately not qualified to adequately understand a lot of them, but i will say that so far i feel very emotional about most of the things going on in libraries today, but most especially cataloging.

    Not all that radical by current standards. It's surprising how much cataloging has changed with the advent of "Network Level" cataloging.

    The essays contained in this book were really fun and eye-opening. As a new library student, this book added to my understanding of librarianship. I highly recommend to anyone who is working as a librarian or interested in librarianship and social justice.
