The Journal of Internet Cataloging brings librarians and systems personnel current information on the rapidly evolving world of providing access to electronic materials available via the Internet.

A convenient guide for experts in cataloging, you'll find the Journal of Internet Cataloging full of articles on current developments in the area of cataloging Internet resources and that it pulls together, in one place, theoretical and practical aspects related to cataloging and organizing digital resources available via the Internet. You will benefit from the efforts made by early researchers in the field and see what works and what does not. You will also enhance your knowledge as you read about: Web sites; the use of classification and automated assists for organizing Web resources; software and hardware for retrieving, reviewing, and describing Internet resources; various philosophical topics; management of the cataloging process of Internet resources; descriptive and subject cataloging applied to Internet resources; up-to-date descriptions of projects for organizing or cataloging Internet resources; problems in maintaining catalog records for remote electronic resources; cooperative projects and international aspects and issues in organizing/cataloging Internet resources.
