Standards for Input Cataloging.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, Berkeley, CA.
The member libraries of the Ohio College Library Center (OCLC) adopted standards for input cataloging in order to improve the technical processes while still keeping costs at a minimum. Increased compatibility of records input by different libraries so that records input by one could be more readily used by others was the final goal. It was decided that Library of Congress practice should be followed whenever possible, and that the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules should be used secondarily. Fields for which standards have been established are: bibliographic control numbers, knowledge numbers, main entry, supplied titles, title paragraph, physical description, series statement, bibliographic notes, subject added entries, other added entries, series added entries, and local fields. Standards for subfields within each field are presented. (SJ)
