Correlations between Title Keywords and LCSH Terms and Their Implication for Fast-Track Cataloging
Cataloging & Classification Quarterly
University Libraries - Technical Services
Budget pressures and increased workloads are causing cataloging departments to look for ways to capitalize on the resources they have. This study applied a rubric to books in the areas of religion, theology, and biblical studies to determine if content-level designation or publisher are good indicators of which books could be fast-tracked through cataloging without compromising quality. Findings indicated that while neither content-level nor publisher were indicators of materials suited to fast-track cataloging, Bible commentaries had a 97% match rate giving a higher level of confidence to fast-track cataloging of these materials.
