Manual for OCLC Catalog Card Production. Revised and Enlarged.
The Ohio College Library Center (OCLC) is a computerized regional library Center serving the academic libraries of Ohio, both state and private, in order to increase and make more efficient use of bibliographical resources. The program has five major components: (1) shared cataloging, (2) bibliographic information retrieval, (3) circulation control, (4) serials control and (5) a technical processing system. This manual revises and expands the information in two previous manuals, the "Preliminary Description of Catalog Cards Produced from MARC II Data," issued in September 1969, and the "Instruction Manual for Catalog Production," issued in February 1970. The manual also calls upon material in various memoranda issued by OCLC. Part I of this manual is a detailed description of the catalog cards produced. While subject to continuing revision to better satisfy user needs, it describes the output that will be available from the on-line system which will be implemented in Summer, 1971 as well as from the present off-line system. Part II, which describes the procedures for requesting catalog cards, is applicable to the off-line system only. (AB)
