New Technical Services Books

Yesterday I received a catalog from Neal-Schuman publishers and saw they have several new books in the subject area "Cataloging & Classification". I generally find N-S publications very helpful. Too bad we won't be purchasing any of these titles for the CMRLS professional collection because I'm really interested in reading a couple of them myself. Perhaps the new Regional Library will buy some or all of these books when it becomes an official organization after June 30.

In the meantime, you might want one or more for your own collection.
