[Meeting of Experts on Shared Cataloguing in Research Libraries, Strasbourg, 6-8 June 1972; Three Papers].
Budach, Anneliese; And Others
Prior to the meeting of the Committee for Higher Education and Research of the Council of Europe, library experts met to discuss shared cataloging in research libraries. Working papers by three of the experts are presented in this volume. The paper by Anneliese Budach on "The Duetsche Bibliothek at Frankfurt am Main and Its Contributions to Shared Cataloging" discusses that library's efforts to meet international cataloguing standards since 1966. J. P. Ducarme presents general comments on shared cataloging in research libraries emphasizing standardized bibliographical control. He discusses the past and present efforts toward standardization, some of the problems involved, and concludes that standard shared cataloging rules are a necessity. In "The Uses to Be Made of MARC Input", P. Brown looks at the special characteristics of library data processing by computer. Reasons for the slow development in the use of MARC, as well as the use that has taken place, and indications for the future are discussed. (SJ)
