Abstract : This paper addresses some problems in cataloguing in two different technological contexts: printed card catalogues and online catalogues. . Some of the current problems in cataloguing in the environment of online library catalogues have been reviewed and highlighted. In particular, minimal-level cataloguing as defined by Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, has been discussed to the extent to which it can play an effective role in a computerised information retrieval system. A number of research questions haw also been suggested for further examination of role and prospects of minimal level cataloguing in the OPACs, and specifically its implications in computerised information retrieval system.
