Proceedings of the Conference on Machine-Readable Catalog Copy (3rd, Library of Congress, February 25, 1966).
Library of Congress, Washington, DC.
A conference was held to permit a discussion between the libraries that will participate in the Library of Congress machine-readable cataloging (MARC) pilot project. The MARC pilot will provide an opportunity for the Library of Congress to assess the effect which data conversion places on the Library's normal processing procedures; the suitability of the proposed standardized machine-readable format for use in other libraries with varying data requirements; and, ultimately, the economics of such a service on a large scale. Included in this report are summaries of introductory talks on the progress of the MARC project to date and the questions and discussion of the conference participants. (Author/JB)
