Wingate, Henry W.
The interest in cataloging-in-source was revived during the twentieth century, with the most important experiment being that of the Library of Congress which concluded the program could not be justified from the viewpoint of financing, technical considerations or utility. A new program has been developed which poses many problems and has far-reaching implications for all libraries. The largest problem is that of cooperation with individual publishers. The publishers, the Library of Congress, and the libraries which will use the entries must all cooperate and find a program consistent with their individual objectives, and many of the inevitable programs must be identified as early as possible if the program is to succeed. A more critical attitude on the part of those involved and a more objective examination of the problems are also required to ensure success. (AB)
