Library resources are any material, regardless of format, that is held in a library’s collection and includes books, periodicals, audio and video recordings, projected media, closed format materials, artwork, photographs, micro-materials, toys and games, kits, software, and electronic databases in the collection or borrowed by the library. — Law Insider

Process

Cataloging is the process of creating metadata representing information resources, such as books, sound recordings, moving images, etc. Cataloging provides information such as author’s names, titles, and subject terms that describe resources, typically through the creation of bibliographic records. The records serve as surrogates for the stored information resources. Since the 1970s these metadata are in machine-readable form and are indexed by information retrieval tools, such as bibliographic databases or search engines. While typically the cataloging process results in the production of library catalogs, it also produces other types of discovery tools for documents and collections. — Wikipedia
