Conversion of the Minnesota Union List of Serials (MULS) To National Serials Data Program (NSDP) Requirements: A Proposal. Final Report.
Grosch, Audrey N., Comp.
The methodologies and costs of converting the Minnesota Union List of Serials (MULS) to the National Serials Data Program (NSDP) requirements are outlined in this document. The conversion is considered under four logical areas: 1) providing quantitative estimates of the amount of computer analysis and programing manpower required to perform a machine conversion of the MULS into the NSDP record format; 2) providing estimates of the kinds, amounts, and sources of the data and amount of professional and subprofessional effort needed to bring the machine converted file into full NSDP specification; 3) providing quantitative estimates of the personnel and processing costs required to produce aperture card surrogates for all titles and the machine-converted file; and 4) studying the feasibility of and developing computer procedures for automated matching of records from the MULS and NST files for the purpose of transfer of ISSN and other data elements from the NST to the MULS file; and providing quantitative estimates of computer analysis and programing time required to implement the various procedures.
