SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AUTOMATED CATALOGING PROJECT. FINAL REPORT.
MCMURRY, GLENN
THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A CENTER FOR PREPARING INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS CATALOGS FOR ORGANIZATIONS IN EIGHT COUNTIES OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WAS STUDIED. TO DETERMINE THE PROBLEMS AND COSTS INVOLVED, STANDARDS WERE DEVELOPED FOR INPUT OF MATERIAL THAT COULD BE USED IN A COMPUTER, PAGE LAYOUTS FOR A CATALOG WERE DESIGNED, A NUMBER OF CATALOGS WERE CONVERTED FOR COMPUTER PRINTOUT, AND THE CATALOGS WERE REPRODUCED AND DISTRIBUTED. RESULTS OF THE STUDY INDICATE THAT THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A CATALOG CENTER IS FEASIBLE. THE CONCLUSIONS DRAWN WERE THAT THE SYSTEM COULD BE USED ON A NATIONWIDE BASIS AND OTHER CENTERS SHOULD ALSO BE ESTABLISHED FOR PREPARATION OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS CATALOGS AND FOR PREPARATION OF LOCAL LIBRARY CATALOGS. THE REPORT INCLUDES FLOWCHARTS FOR UPDATING MASTER FILES AND FOR COMPUTER PRINT PROCEDURE. A PERT DIAGRAM ILLUSTRATES THE COMPLETE CATALOG PRODUCTION PROCESS. (AL)
