The Tehran Book Processing Centre.
Harvey, John F.
Establishment of the Tehran Book Processing Centre (Tebroc) was proposed in the Spring of 1968. This document is a descriptive and historical account of the center, and a description of its contributions to Iranian processing development. The center was modeled, to a certain extent, after Bro-Dart's Alanar in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Tebroc was designed to provide large scale, modern, economic and professional book selection, acquisition, cataloging, classification, and shelf preparation services for Iranian libraries and information centers. All types of libraries were to be served in all parts of Iran. Books in all languages and from all countries, all types and forms of printed and audio-visual materials, all subject fields and English, French, German, Spanish, Persian, and Arabic languages, were to be processed. The organization was Iranian in some ways, western in others, sometimes was very successful, sometimes hopeless. The paper should answer the question, how did this American idea fare in the Iranian library world. (LI 004244 through 004249 and LI 004251 through 004267 are related.) (Author/SJ)
