  • An observation study of the socio-cognitive context of subject cataloguing in university libraries
Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP)
  • A study of the subject indexing process in university libraries is presented, using a socio-cognitive approach to analyze the procedures, difficulties and perceptions of the librarians, users, and managers that take part in the process. Individual and group verbal protocols were applied in the real environment of the cataloguers, the university libraries. The results were the absence of systematic procedures for book subject analysis and representation, the incompatibility of the indexing language, and problems in subject retrieval from the catalog. It is concluded that there is a tendency in catalogs to act as databases. Therefore, the cataloguer should present a level of commitment in his task similar to that of an indexer who works in the production of bibliographic databases.
  • Se presenta un estudio del proceso de catalogación temática en las bibliotecas universitarias desde la perspectiva socio-cognitiva en el que se analizan los procedimientos, los problemas y las percepciones de los bibliotecarios, usuarios y gestores. Se aplicaron protocolos verbales individuales y de grupo en bibliotecas universitarias. Se constató la ausencia de procedimientos sistemáticos para el análisis y la representación de los temas de los libros, la incompatibilidad del lenguaje documental, y la existencia de problemas de recuperación por materias en el catálogo. Se concluye que la tendencia actual de los catálogos es a funcionar como bases de datos. Por ello, el catalogador debe presentar una postura comprometida similar a la del indizador que trabaja en la producción de dichas bases.
