Proceedings of the Conference on Machine-Readable Catalog Copy (4th, Library of Congress, December 4, 1967).
Library of Congress, Washington, DC.
After the decision was made to continue the Library of Congress machine-readable cataloging (MARC) project as an operational system, a conference was held to permit discussion of the new MARC II format, problems concerning the character set used for bibliographic data, and the feasibility of sharing program specifications for bibliographic processing. Attendees at the meeting included representatives from the libraries receiving MARC records, several departments of the Library of Congress, the Council on Library Resources, the National Science Foundation, and the President's National Advisory Commission on Libraries. This report consists of summaries of talks and discussion by conference participants. (JB)
