Serials Automation in the United States: A Bibliographic History.
Pitkin, Gary M.
All articles cited in "Library Literature" between 1949 and 1974 dealing with automation of serials control, but not including articles on union lists or other cooperative projects, are listed and annotated. The articles are presented in chronological order, providing a history of the topic. Entries include the "Library Literature" citation followed by three content indentification categories: applications, type of library, and institution. The annotations rely heavily on quoted matter. Some short articles are presented exactly as written. Articles that do not present new information are not annotated but are cross-referenced to related articles. An appendix indexes articles by serials control functions--binding information, check-in, claiming, holdings information, language information, ordering, renewal, routing, statistics, subject information, and title listing.
