A Survey of Library of Congress Card Order Response Time.
Peters, Stephen H.
During the Autumn of 1975, Northwestern Michigan University Library undertook a survey of the amount of time necessary for the Library of Congress to fill orders for sets of catalog cards. The time outstanding was recorded for over 2000 orders. Response time varied between five and fifty-five weeks. It was concluded that use of Machine Readable Cataloging (MARC) tapes through a bibliographic network could significantly reduce this lag time. (EMH)
