"Metadata mayhem: cataloguing electronic resources in the National Library of New Zealand" by Chris Todd appears in The Electronic Library v. 21, no. 3 (2003)
This paper takes a chronological approach to the cataloguing of electronic resources within the National Library of New Zealand. It briefly outlines the early work in this area and then looks at how the role of a national library affects the cataloguing process. This is followed by a description of current approaches to cataloguing published digital materials and the transformation of the catalogue record that has been part of this process. Finally some issues that are still under discussion are outlined.
