Automated alternatives to card catalogs: the current state of planning and implementation

Journal of library automation [December 1975]


Abstract: The results of a study carried out under the auspices of the Council on Library Resources are described. The stated goal of this study was to determine and analyze the current state of planning and implementation for computer-generated replacements for the card catalog (book catalog, micro-image catalog, on-line catalog) for large collections (250,000 titles or more) and selected smaller libraries (less than 250,000 titles) that had actually implemented an alternative form of catalog.
