Abstract
  • This paper describes a project conducted in conjunction with the library at the LGBT Center of Raleigh. Five volunteers were instructed to create catalog records for the same ten books, following only the instructions in a set of procedures called the cataloguing manual. Their work was then briefly discussed. The effectiveness of the manual was evaluated by comparing the participants' records with librarian-created "perfect" records for the same books. Participants' qualitative feedback was then incorporated into the final draft of the manual.
