"How to Catalogue a Library" by Henry B. Wheatley is a book on nineteenth-century theories of knowledge organization and retrieval of information. Those who are interested in library work are constantly asked where a statement of the first principles of cataloging may be found, and the question is one that is not easy to answer. Most of the rules which have been printed are intended for large public libraries and are necessarily laid down on a scale that unfits them for use in the making of a small catalog.
