Automated Technical Operations: Unified Ordering/Cataloging Systems at the Libraries of the Claremont Colleges.
Teare, Robert F., Ed.
Since 1966 the libraries of the Associated Claremont Colleges have developed an automated central acquisition and cataloging system. This system differs from most other technical service organizations and operations in three ways: (1) ordering and cataloging operations are integrated and blended to avoid duplicate and uncoordinated performance, (2) the catalog department edits the ordering data for incorporation into the data base and classifies the item before it arrives, and (3) the data is keypunched to serve as a multipurpose record for use by various computer programs including those that generate orders and catalog cards. The various automated operations of this system and the more conventional technical department functions that feed data to them are reported, accompanied by flow charts and sample forms. (Author/PF)
