Card Catalogs: Alternative Futures. A Selected Bibliography on Closing Card Catalogs and Alternative Catalog Formats with Separate Sections on AACR 2 and PRECIS.
Abbott, George L., Comp.
This listing of 227 citations includes references to existing book, computer output microfilm, and online catalogs, the cost of conversion, the success of existing systems, Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR 2), and the Preserved Context Indexing System (PRECIS). It is intended to aid libraries in making major decisions on what form their catalogs will take in the future. References for non-U.S. journals, some not in English, have been mentioned to give a broader perspective of the issue at hand; however, it is pointed out that there are many differences in costs, equipment, and user expectations for a catalog outside the United States.
