Additional Access Points in Cataloging
Below is an example of a computer record. This type of computer display does not show access points in the same style as the card catalog format. For computer records, access points are often entered into the cataloging record when all of the information is input, but the patron does not see that information displayed like the card format shows. The access points are all listed here, but as part of the display, not as a separate listing at the bottom of the catalog record.

SUMMARY Josefina hopes to become

SUBJECTS 1) Healers—Fiction
This catalog record has access points for the author, title, a series, and three subjects. With the additional search capabilities of the computer, keyword access would also be provided for the subtitle and information in the summary.
Below is an example of a similar entry in a card format. In this case, the various access points are added at the bottom of the card. Here we have no keyword access to the subtitle or the contents, but we can add an entry point for the series. Several subject headings are added to cover the information referred to in the contents. As was shown in the section on placing headings in the catalog record, for a card catalog entry this record would be duplicated 7 more times, and each of the subject headings and additional access points would be typed at the top of one copy of this record.
