CUMULATIVE BOOK INDEX: CUMULATIVE BOOK INDEX BY: Preya Jamdar Guided by: Sharav Desai Pioneer Pharmacy Degree college PowerPoint Presentation: Cumulative book index : Is a world list of books in SOURCES OF BIBLIOGRAPHIC INFORMATION . PowerPoint Presentation: Cumulative Book Index (familiarly known as CBT) is an important example for American librarians . One of the most frequently used British and American trade bibliographies. Dictionary arrangement with authors, titles, and subjects alphabetically by name. PowerPoint Presentation: Monthly, except August, with annual cumulations. Also online and on CD-ROM. R eplaced all earlier sources Ex. Pamphlets and Report Literature. PowerPoint Presentation: The indexing was stared by H.W. Wilson Company. As a bookseller , H.W Wilson had to constantly search through publishers' catalogs in order to keep track of currently published books that his customers might want. It was tedious and time-consuming work that prompted him to long for a comprehensive, up-to-date index of published works . He eventually decided to create such an index himself. PowerPoint Presentation: What made the concept work economically was Wilson's idea to keep the publication current by placing each entry on a printer's "slug," which could then be later sorted with slugs from new entries. It may have been an obvious solution to someone who had experience as a job printer, but it was a revolutionary concept in bibliographical publishing. PowerPoint Presentation: In February 1898 Wilson first published   Cumulative Book Index ,  a comprehensive alphabetic list of currently published books in English, featuring the key elements of future Wilson indexes: the listing of author, title, and subject. The work sold for $1 to 300 subscribers, who would then receive periodically updated versions . PowerPoint Presentation: In 1929 - Education Index  and  Art Index . In 1932- The  Vertical File Service Catalog , a list of pamphlets and similar material indexed by subject and including descriptive notes and prices. In 1936- Index of books, periodicals, and pamphlets concerning the library profession. In 1940- Current Biography PowerPoint Presentation:  1985 the company offered its first electronic product,  Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature , but its WILSEARCH proprietary set of search commands proved cumbersome. Not only did Wilson fall behind the competition in delivering data electronically, it also lost some of its edge with librarians. The company failed to copyright its contents and so lost its importance. PowerPoint Presentation: USING WILSONWEB References: References International Directory of Company Histories , Vol. 66.
