"Maxwell should be part of every student-cataloger's bookshelf and all professional collections". That was Library Journal's advice in 1989 when the predecessor of today's Maxwell's Handbook was revised.

Following in the Maxwell tradition, this revision of the standard guide is by far the most comprehensive and precise cataloging handbook and study aid for students and practitioners in all types of libraries.

Incorporating the 1993 Amendments to AACR2R and the increasing use of MARC formatting in cataloging, Maxwell's Handbook follows the easy-to-use, practical format of earlier versions. Its 500-plus pages are packed with hundreds of examples to clarify the rules of contemporary cataloging practice. In addition to providing examples in MARC, this authoritative resource addresses rule interpretations of the major Anglo-American national libraries. The authors have also provided a new chapter on manuscripts and archives to correspond with AACR2R.
