TECHNILIB Feasibility Study; Phase 1 and Phase 2 Report.
Library Council of Victoria, Melbourne (Australia).
Faced with task duplication in its public branch libraries, the Library Council of Victoria, Australia, undertook a feasibility study called Technilib to determine whether a central cataloging and processing bureau should be established. Consultants considered the practicality and expense of introducing a centralized cataloging service using the Machine Readable Catalog (MARC) System. Particular attention was given to the potential expense of making MARC compatible with the already existing system. The contents of the report include a needs survey, a proposal for the organization of the new center, and a cost proposal for the construction and operation of the center. (EMH)
