Abstract: When Pica set out to coordinate the joint catalog building between 13 Dutch university libraries and the national library at the end of the 1960s, no one imagined the foundation would grow into the powerful and impressive multinational company it is today. After all, that was not the intention: all the cooperative wanted was to make a leap in efficiency, and computerize and centralize the various cataloging efforts. It is no coincidence they were doing this with an eye toward what OCLC had already started a few years before.
