A study of errors found in non-MARC cataloging in a machine-assisted system

Journal of library automation [June 1978]


Abstract: One of the most important impacts in cataloging in recent years is the use of a cooperative cataloging data base. In order to make the most advantageous use of such a system, it must contain uniform and accurate cataloging. This article reports the results of a study of cataloging records input into the OCLC data base by participating libraries (non-MARC records). The records were analyzed to determine the various fields of the cataloging record where most errors occur as well as the types of errors that are being made on the cataloging input into the data base.
