Map Cataloging Workshop, presented by Mary Lynette Larsgaard, University of California, Santa Barbara

Ms. Larsgaard began the workshop by distributing a map and opaque scalefinder (natural scale indicator-- a necessary tool for map catalogers) and had participants open their maps, thereby demonstrating the importance of having a large space to catalog maps. She provided some helpful information about where to order materials and locate information useful to map catalogers.
Ms. Larsgaard was very familiar with the changes in Chapter 3, having been active in collecting and submitting rule change proposals. There are three basic kinds of changes in Chapter 3: changes necessitated by cartographic materials in electronic form; miscellaneous changes to rules to reflect cataloging practice; and editorial changes. In this workshop she emphasized substantive changes and concentrated on the parts of the bibliographic record that were different for cartographic materials.
Ms. Larsgaard uses degrees of latitude, then statute miles most often when using a natural scale indicator. She instructed the class in how to determine the scale of a map using latitude with the scale indicator.
In closing, Ms. Larsgaard announced that the second edition of Cartographic Materials: A Manual of Interpretation for AACR2, prepared by the Anglo-American Cataloging Committee for Cartographic Materials, will be published in loose-leaf format by ALA publications during 2003. The 1982 edition has been out-of-print for quite some time.
