Introduction • Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR) is the most inclusive and detailed cataloging code used for descriptive cataloging in Australia, Canada, Great Britain, and the United States. • Latest version is AACR, 2nd edition, 2002 revision, with 2005 updates • It is divided into two parts: Part I – Description; and Part II – Headings, Uniform Titles and References.

Organization of the Description • The bibliographic description is divided into the following areas, presented in the order specified in AACR2R. • Area – a major section of the bibliographic description, comprising data or set of categories (AACR2, p. D-1). • Element – A word or group of characters representing a distinct unit of bibliographic information and forming a part of an area of the description (AACR2, p. D.3).
Areas of Description (1.0B1) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
Title and statement of responsibility Edition Material specific details Publication, distribution, etc. (Imprint) Physical description Series Notes Standard number and terms of availability
Sources of Information • Chief source of information – the source of bibliographic data to be given preference as the source from which a bibliographic description (or portion thereof) is prepared. (1.0A3) • Each area of description has prescribed sources of information, from which the bibliographic information must be taken.

Levels of Description (1.0D) • There are 3 recommended levels of description, to accommodate the difference needs of libraries of different sizes and purposes. • Each level sets a minimum number of elements. • Levels and recommended type of library (Cayaban, 2009): • First level (for school libraries) • Second level (for academic libraries) • Third level (for research libraries)
