Before 7982, description of items in the University of Malaya Library card catalogues was done in accordance with rules specified in the first edition of the Anglo- American Cataloging Rules (AACR 7) with some local modifications. However with effect from 7st January 7982, the main author-title and subject card catalogues were closed. Records of new items are processed in MALMARC format and maintained in microfiche format (t.e. COM catalogue). Along with these changes, the Library has also decided to adopt the rules for description of items as laid down in the second edition of the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR 2).
