Make maps and other cartographic materials more easily accessible and usable! Maps and Related Cartographic Materials: Cataloging, Classification, and Bibliographic Control is a format-focused reference manual for catalogers that should occupy a prominent place on your reference shelf. Outside of standard cartographic cataloging tools, the bibliographic treatment of all forms of cartographic materials has never been compiled into one useful source. This book separately examines the treatment of all major cartographic format types and outlines the way each should be cataloged. With Maps and Related Cartographic Materials: Cataloging, Classification, and Bibliographic Control, you will learn to catalog the major formats of cartographic materials, including: sheet maps early and contemporary atlases remote-sensed images such as aerial photographs and satellite images globes geologic sections digital material items on CD-ROM Although it is primarily aimed at the beginning “maps cataloger,” Maps and Related Cartographic Materials: Cataloging, Classification, and Bibliographic Control will also be very helpful to the experienced cataloger who has not yet attempted to catalog, say, maps on CD-ROM. In each chapter, the experience and expertise of an established map cataloger or map librarian is the main source of information, giving you practical and up-to-date advice.

Guide to U.S. Map Resources, Third Edition offers a detailed snapshot of and guide to hundreds of map collections and cartographic resources in libraries and repositories throughout the nation. Substantial changes have occurred within library map collections in recent years and the computer has been at the core of most of these innovations. Such technologies as geographic information systems (GIS), the World Wide Web, e-mail, Portable Document Format (PDF), data sets, and digitalization have all played revolutionary roles in transforming libraries - and map collections in particular - over the past fifteen years. Today's librarians are no longer limited by the contents of their own map and atlas collections. In many cases, they can turn to the Internet and find a map or data set physically located in a library hundreds or thousands of miles away. Packed with map library information, such as library holdings, collections, contacts, hours, locations, circulations, and much more, Guide to U.S. Map Resources, Third Edition is the ultimate guide to the varied and still somewhat-hidden cartographic collections and their personnel.

How do we think about the worlds we live in? The formation of categories of events and objects seems to be a fundamental orientation procedure. Facet theory and its main tool, the mapping sentence, deal with categories of behavior and experience, their interrelationship, and their unification as our worldviews. In this book Hackett reviews philosophical writing along with neuroscientific research and information form other disciplines to provide a context for facet theory and the qualitative developments in this approach. With a variety of examples, the author proposes mapping sentences as a new way of understanding and defining complex behavior.
