A New Catalog: Some Ideas on Its Purpose, Form, Cost, and Planning for It.
Kaske, Neal K.
Ideas and methods for improving library service through changes in library catalogs are presented and discussed. These ideas and methods are in four basic areas: (1) methods for evaluating a library's current catalog(s); (2) costing different forms of the catalog; (3) examining the effects on an individual library's catalog(s) of Anglo-American Cataloging Rules II (AACR II) and the closing of its catalog by the Library of Congress (LC); (4) managing and planning for the changes resulting from AACR II, closing of the LC catalog, and changing the form of catalogs in individual libraries. Examples of all the methods are provided. (Author/JD)
