|Title:||CATALOGUING NEEDS NEW DIMENSIONS|
|Abstract:||While cataloguing a multi-authored publication according to AACR II, the names of second author onwards are dropped in case there are more than three authors (two authors in the case of CCC) responsible for the book. The same is the case with the collaborators. It is argued that in the changed context brought about by information technology, there is no need to drop any of the authors l collaborators responsible for the book Inclusion of all the authors l collaborators in the catalogue will ensure giving credit to all of them. Moreover, this will help a great deal in the compilation of a personal bibliography based on library catalogues. Quite often need arises to search a catalogue with place of publication, publisher, year of publication, language of the document and so on. Sometimes, it also becomes necessary to search from a book, a portrait, an illustration of a famous building, a rare map not available in the general atlases, and so on. It is suggested that all these data available in a catalogue should be made searchable in a computerised catalogue.|
