Abstract: High levels of inflation and drastic cuts in library budgets demand careful planning and effective management control in all aspects of library operations. New and existing library systems must use all resource efficiently particularly staff. This paper deals with existing systems and with improvements in their cost-effectiveness. For example, by adapting the organization and procedures to make more efficient use of existing resources and technology, the cataloging department''s productivity and the quality of catalogs can be improved. It will be shown how small changes to an existing computer-based catalog support system can facilitate an entirely new approach to catalog control.
