Bibliographic Utilities - Trove

Here is the contribution from another course participant, Prabhu Singam:


National library of Australia catalogue is one of the most useful free bibliographic utilities with more than 400 million books, images, historic newspapers, maps, music, archives records that can be of prodigious help to catalogers.

A simple title search for a resource would illicit an array of results broken down neatly according to the material type.

Comprehensive information about resources including summaries of books can be obtained from the records at trove.

The ubiquitous availability of music scores bibliographic information with the Dewey decimal classification number makes trove one of my personal favorite tool for cataloging as the resources I catalog usually involves a legion of music scores.


Thanks to Prabhu for his insightful sharing on Bibliographic Utilities - Trove

21 - 22 Jan are assessment days for this module "Support Bibliographic Control", I hereby wishing Prabhu and all the candidates all the best for the coming assessment!
