Library-based metadata and knowledge organization standards, such as Resource Description and Access (RDA); Dewey Decimal Classification system (DDC); and Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH), are called “international” or “universal” as they are increasingly adopted by countries around the world.

This article presents results from a cataloging study of Thai libraries. A focus group and interviews were used to gather data on Thai catalogers’ use and perception of cataloging standards in Thai libraries and how well they meet their needs.
