    Cataloging Internet Resources
    (The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, 1993) Caplan, Priscilla
    Let Archie Do It? How do we accommodate networked electronic information when our cataloging rules are designed to describe physical items owned by and residing in libraries? How do we provide access to that information? Do we let Archie do it instead? Questions like these must be addressed before we can move into the future and provide our patrons with information the way they are coming to expect it. It isn't sufficient that we simply debate these issues at conferences and write about them in the literature. Action is needed, and well-established rules and practices must be changed. All of that is easy to agree with, but deciding how to change established rules and practices is another matter, not to mention actually revising them.
