Manually Maintained Serials Records.
Ortopan, LeRoy D.; And Others
At the American Library Association Annual Conference in Dallas in 1971, the Serials Section of the Resources and Technical Services Division established a committee to produce a state-of-the-art report on the maintenance of serial records by manual methods in all types of libraries. The Ad Hoc Committee to Study Manually Maintained Serials developed a questionnaire to cover the basic functions of receiving, checking-in, and claiming serials. Responses and working forms were received from 91 academic, public, and special libraries in the United States and Canada. Of these, 89 responses were included in the committee's three-part report. Results were tabulated by listing under each question the written response of each library. Claim, payment, and check-in forms submitted by the responding libraries were gathered to form the second section. Lengthy explanatory comments were collected in an appendix to form the third part. A copy of the questionnaire and a list of responding libraries are included. (Author/LS)
