The Development of a Computerized Regional Library System. Appendix 25. Final Report.
Kilgour, Frederick G., Comp.; Davis, Hillis D., Comp.
The purpose of the Ohio College Library Center (OCLC) computerized regional library system is to provide an on-line system that makes available to faculty and students in individual colleges and universities the library resources throughout a region, while at the same time decelerating the rate of rise of per-student library costs. The research and development culminated in the successful implementation of an on-line union catalog and shared cataloging system. The final report of the project is LI 004 422. This document contains appendix twenty-five, The Ohio College Library Center Program/Subroutine Documentation; Convert Call Number (CNVT). CNVT is the first step in the formatting and production of catalog cards. The primary function is to format the call number for each catalog card request according to the predetermined specifications. To accomplish the individual format, CNVT uses a massive tree structure of information accessed by profiles, one profile per member holding library. Secondary functions of CNVT include formatting of some user data and selective deletion of unnecessary data from the member profile. (Other appendices are LI 004 423 through LI 004 425, LI 004 427 and LI 004 428.) (Author/SJ)
