The comment of David Badertscher is interesting if we think about how to explain cataloging to non-cataloguers. Cataloguing it’s not only filling in the gaps of a database but also doing many other tasks which are more complex than what is thought.
People with cataloguing training have the knowledge that allows them to manage in the use of databases and websearching with more precision than a non-cataloguer. For this reason David Badertscher thinks that catalogers are useful to work with information. Catalogers realize many different tasks during their day by day.
