Book Ordering and Processing System Study.
Pritchard, Alan; Auckland, M.
A summary is provided of an investigation made of the book ordering and processing procedures used by the four site libraries operated by the Library and Learning Resources Service of the City on London Polytechnic. The survey sought: 1) to analyze current practices in the sub-areas of selection, bibliographic checking, ordering, receipt, accessioning, cataloging, and physical processing; and 2) to make short-term recommendations to ease the current work flow. The conclusions are advanced that many of the present procedures are needlessly complicated and that they vary from library to library within the system. The recommendations offered are designed to simplify and standardize these procedures. In addition, a detailed system is suggested to guide future library operations. (Author/PB)
