Establishing a Cassette Program for a Public Library.
Egan, Carol M.
Illinois Libraries, Mar 1974
The Suburban Library System of Hinsdale, Illinois developed a program for selecting, ordering, cataloging, processing, and circulating 6,279 cassettes in 1972. This program was implemented to make available to the public a large rotating collection of cassette recordings of both music and the spoken word. The member libraries decided jointly on the collection content in order to avoid duplication and to create an indepth collection for the total library system. Instead of being centrally housed, the cassettes were distributed, on a rotating basis, to eight libraries in the system. (KC)
