MODULE 4 Access Points Practice Assignment

Due Feb. 24

PART I. Briefly Define the following terms as relates to describing and organizing media:
1. Access Points
Any name, word, or phrase by which a catalog record can be retrieved from the catalog, known
also as an entry, heading or retrieval point.
2. Main Entry
The first and most important descriptive access point assigned to a catalog record by which the
item can be retrieved. Also, in a single entry catalog, the access point for a record.
3. Added Entry
A secondary access point, any heading by which a catalog record can be retrieved other than
the first or main record.
4. Rule of Three
A library rule-of-thumb using three as the cutoff point for differing treatments. 1. In AACR-2005,
if one, two, or three authors are equally responsible for an item, choose the first named as the
main entry, but if there are more than three, choose the title as the main entry. 2. In Sears List of
Subject Headings, suggestion that not more than three subject headings should be applied to
one item.
5. Call Number / Call Letters
Call Number: the shelf address of an item, usually consisting of its classification number and
shelf marks
Shelf Marks: any code or system of marks designed to arrange items on shelves, excluding the
classification numbers, also called book mark or call letter.
6. Authority Files (Authority Control)
A file containing the official forms of names, uniform titles, series titles, subject headings, or all
used access points in a library catalog, and citations to sources used to establish them as well
as cross-references to variant forms.
