Title: Library cataloguing teaching: From drill to discussion (A report from the west)
Authors: Gupta, R K
Issue Date: Jun-1971
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: The world of library cataloguing has rapidly changed in recent years: from extensive original cataloguing we have ushered in an era of centralized cataloguing and printed cards. Therefore, the emphasis in teaching cataloguing has shifted from drill to an effort to pave the way to a deeper understanding of the subject (not only what and how but also why). As cataloguing is not an isolated activity in the library and is rather closely related to various other areas of library work like book selection, acquisition, reference service, etc., an increasing number of library schools are reflecting these trends in their curriculums by gearing their cataloguing teaching programmes to meet these new demands. Finally, a cataloguing teacher for that matter any teacher, requires a thorough grounding in the theory of learning and its application in a classroom situation.
