Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules

The Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR) are a national cataloging code first published in 1967. AACR2 stands for the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, Second Edition. It is published jointly by the American Library Association, the Canadian Library Association, and the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals in the UK. The editor is Michael Gorman, a British-born librarian living in the Chicago area and honored by both the ALA and CILIP. AACR2 is designed for use in the construction of catalogs and other lists in general libraries of all sizes. The rules cover the description of, and the provision of access points for, all library materials commonly collected at the present time.
