Stein (Theodore) Co., New York, NY.; Nelson Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
This report proposes a program for establishing a single acquisitions--cataloging center and a network of physical preparation facilities for New York's public libraries. Part A describes a proposed pilot project to be implemented before the establishment of the total program. Part B is a discussion of various aspects of the centralized processing system including its location, location of the pilot project, organization, job descriptions and recruitment, statewide cataloging standards, uniform acquisitions procedures, coordination with school and academic libraries, financing, legal matters, and public relations. Part C, a timetable for implementation of the system, indicates that the center would not be ready to begin serving the public libraries before the end of 1973. The first phase, the pilot project, should be ready by early 1970. The final section of the report is a brief discussion of the status of existing technical processing systems during the implementation period. (CC)
