The OCLC Serials Sub-System: A First Evaluation.
Edgar, Neal L.; And Others
This examination of the OCLC serials control sub-system points to positive and negative aspects of the OCLC system as they relate to serials, and evaluates the system's serials cataloging capabilities. While this report assumes a knowledge of the basic operations of OCLC, it describes the system in general, its function in cataloging, and its serials check-in component, concluding that no widely accepted evidence exists to prove that the OCLC serials sub-system is any faster than a well-run manual system. Illustrations include diagrams of the OCLC database and examples of system functions. (FM)
