Abstract: Examines in detail the Preliminary official report of the International conference on Cataloguing Principles, Paris, 1961. Analyses clause by clause the prescriptions given in the report regarding scope, functions, structure of a catalogue, kinds of entries, multiple entries, choice of uniform heading, single personal author, entry under corporate bodies, collections, works, entry word, etc. Suggests wherever necessary, alternative prescriptions. The implications of the prescriptions are examined in the idea plane and the verbal plane. Shows how the Conference was mainly biased towards the treatment of the books of the past and paid little attention to look into the future. Recommends the adoption of the standard practices prescribed by the Indian Standards Institution as a step to facilitate cataloguing of future publications.
