The Canadian Library Association, the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, and the American Library Association will publish the 2002 Revision of ANGLO-AMERICAN CATALOGUING RULES, SECOND EDITION in September 2002. Major changes in both content and format will make the release of the 2002 Revision momentous.


  • Fully integrated 1999 and 2001 Amendments and revisions approved and finalized through 2002
  • More than 100 substantive changes throughout the text and completely updated Index
  • Three completely revised and updated chapters (Cartographic Materials, Electronic Resources, Continuing Resources)
  • A more user-friend format with 8.5" X 11" looseleaf pages that fit a standard 3-ring binder
  • Separately numbered chapters for easy integration of future updates
  • A brand new text design that clearly distinguishes the rules from the examples

With annual updates that will easily integrate into this brand new, streamlined format, AACR2-2002 is an up-to-the-minute, forward-looking revision that will equip you to catalog any type of resource, print or electronic.
