Alternative Physical Forms for Library Catalogs: Card, Book, Microform, On-Line. A Working Paper Prepared for the Subcommittee on the Future of the Catalogs.
Nozik, Barbara A.
This is a general descriptive and comparative report on alternative forms of library catalogs. The specific problems and factors associated with library catalogs are introduced briefly and then treated with respect to the following physical forms: card catalogs, book catalogs, microforms, and on-line catalogs. Whenever possible, examples of existing catalog systems are cited. An attempt is made to identify major cost factors of each physical form relative to production, maintenance, and use. In addition, potential effects of the various catalog forms on a decentralized library system are considered. (CH)
