Narrative Evaluation Report On The Institute For The Automation of Bibliographical Services At The School of Library and Information Services, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742 (10-21 June, 1968).
Batty, C. David
The Institute on the Automation of Bibliographical Services was held at the University of Maryland, 10-21 June 1968, conducted by the School of Library and Information Services, assisted by the Library of Congress Information Systems Office and the University Computer Science Center. Thirty-nine participants from academic, special, and public library systems attended and were taught by a staff drawn from the University faculty and from libraries cooperating in the MARC experiment. The Institute program consisted of lectures, seminar discussion and practical exercises in two laboratory sessions; one on the preparation of bibliographic data for input into the computer, demonstrating the conversion of information to paper tape; the other on computer manipulation of MARC tapes for various purposes. Participants in the Institute stated that exposure to the first hand detail and experience of the MARC experiment had given them a very real understanding of the problems and processes of library automation. Many were confirmed in the acceptance of the Library of Congress tapes as a basis for future operation. (Institute materials are presented in the appendixes.) (Author/SL)
