The Use of an On-Line Microfiche Catalog for Technical Service and Retrieval of Bibliographic Data. Final Report.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Graduate School of Library and Information Science.
This report describes the development and implementation of a prototype system that integrates a microfiche catalog into an online computer system for bibliographic control. Such a system permits the storage of catalog data not yet converted to digital form, data in ideographic form, data for large numbers of little-used records, and data for use with mini- and micro-computers. The five sections of the report include (1) an overview of the project and a review of the potential for use of microform catalogs as components of computer-based systems; (2) a review of recent developments in the use of such catalogs, including a topically-arranged bibliography and a synoptic analysis of it; (3) an operator's manual which specifies how to use the equipment involved and explains how the machine programs function and interrelate; (4) a description of the programs used in demonstrating the system; and (5) a cost/effectiveness evaluation of the system.
