Places present day UK culture and society in a postmodern context and considers their impact on libraries and cataloguing, concentrating specifically on the concepts of globalization and the death of tradition. Moves on to discuss how libraries can continue to provide high quality, structured access to their collections and the need for strategic management of this process. Emphasizes the importance of defining what the library wants to achieve, setting objectives, and maintaining the capacity for flexible response to changing conditions, using as a case study the development and implementation of the British Library cataloguing strategy.
