Centralized Processing for Indiana Libraries.
Roth, Harold L.; And Others
Recommendations are made for further centralization of cataloging and processing for libraries in Indiana. The eventual goal would be to offer such services to all types of libraries in the state, with the exception of special libraries and large university libraries, from several (three to four) regional area processing centers. These in turn would be provided with all cataloging information from one center. The suggested steps for implementation include: (1) Appointment of a Technical Services Advisory Council; (2) Development of standards for cataloging and processing of juvenile materials; (3) Development of a financial pattern for center establishment and maintenance; (4) Choice of a center, development of routines, solicitation of members; (5) Initial production for current juvenile titles; (6) Establishment of cycle ordering procedures for retrospective titles; and (7) Issuance of acquisitions lists as selection aids, especially for nonbook media.
