The following article presents data found in two cataloging studies: (1) examining cataloging errors in entry-level calaloging (original cataloging produced by entry-level catalogers) and (2) examining cataloging errors in the OCLC and RLIN databases. The number and percentage of errors are analyzed to determine whether or not certain “areas of cataloging difficulty” exist in monographic cataloging. Similarities were found in the error rates in the two studies. Factors contributing to the error rates and the implications regarding teaching and management are discussed.
