Lancaster, F. Wilfrid, Ed.
The papers presented are of broad scope, both from the viewpoint of approaches to cooperation and types of library involved. Major emphasis is placed on data processing within library networks and in cooperative processing centers. General overviews on library networking operations are presented. The components and configurations of library networks are described with emphasis on experience and accomplishments in New York State. Several authors deal with three major programs in cooperative or centralized processing: the Ohio College Library Center, the Massachusetts Central Library Processing Service, and the College Bibliocentre of Ontario. Activities within the Federal Government are also described. The final group of papers is devoted to cooperation among libraries on a somewhat smaller scale or in more specialized environments.
