The Development of a Computerized Regional Library System. Appendices 26 & 27. 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 appendices twenty-six and -seven: The Ohio College Library Center Program/Subroutine Documentation--(26) Generate Pack Definition Tables (GENPDTS) and (27) Catalog Card Format Program (CCFP). The FORTRAN program, GENPDTS, records the institutions' coded cataloging requirements in the format required by the CCFP. The second step in the formatting and production of catalog cards which are sent to member libraries is the CCFP. Depending on pre-determined specifications for each member library, CCFP creates a card for each catalog set up by the member, varying the headings and setting indentions as prescribed by the member. (Other appendices are LI 004 423 through LI 004 426 and LI 004 428.) (Author/SJ)
