Northwestern University Library has resurrected the practice of latest entry cataloging to avoid some of the difficulties encountered with split entries resulting from the use of successive entry cataloging in its online integrated system. As a result of applying latest entry to selected title changes while attempting to conform as much as possible to AACR2, Northwestern developed rules to be used as a supplement to AACR2 Chapters 12 and 21. The rules and accompanying examples represent recent developments in Northwestern's experiment with latest entry cataloging.
