Adherence to the quality in cataloguing has been the concern of catalogues for decades. This paper reviews various perceptions on issues related to cataloguing quality, which in reality vary among cataloguers. Cataloguing standards acts as guidelines for creation of catalogue records and as benchmark for evaluation of them. Creation of error free catalogue records is of paramount importance. However, accuracy alone cannot assure the quality, but the cataloguers need to understand the purpose of cataloguing the documents in hand. The cataloguing quality refers both to descriptive and subject cataloguing. Quality maintenance is a culture and need to be instilled through rigorous training.
