Planning for the catalogs: a managerial perspective

Journal of library automation [September 1978]


Copyright (c) 1978 Library Information and Technology Association

Abstract: Problems inherent in planning for a transition from traditional card catalogs to other catalog forms are discussed. Some attention is given to the implications of AACR II, the lack of an automated authority control system, and difficulties in obtaining machine-readable retrospective files. A planning approach is outlined in some detail, giving specific questions that might be addressed. Focus is on the decision-making process and identifying information that must be known by management before new designs for a catalog can be implemented effectively.
