Planning Data for the Conversion of UCUCS-2 Catalog Card Records Into Machine Readable form (UCUCS-2 Conversion Planning). Report No. ILR-75-006.
Bourne, Charles P.
The Institute of Library Research converted to machine-readable form over one million catalog cards representing about 750,000 Roman-language titles catalogued by the University of California (UC) libraries from 1963 to 1967. From this data base they printed the UC Union Catalog Supplement (UCUCS-1). From 1968 to 1972, an additional set of card records was collected and preprocessed. This study determined the extent to which the new UCUCS-2 records are available in already existing University of California data bases and in a few "outside" data bases. A one-half percent stratified sample was drawn from each UC campus and findings revealed that 82% of the UCUCS-2 sample could be associated with some kind of unique identification number, but only 63% of the total actually had this number on the catalog record; the others had to be searched in other files.
