Committee on the Future of the Card Catalog. Final Report.
Seal, Robert A.; And Others
This final report of the Committee on the Future of the Card Catalog at the University of Virginia considers the evaluative reports of three task forces on the effects of AACR2 and recommends that the university library set as a top priority goal the design, development, and implementation of an online catalog by 1983. The committee further recommends that the library not close its catalog in 1981 but wait until the online catalog is in place. After 1981 the open catalog should include full two-way links between the old and the new headings. The library should move to become a member of the Research Libraries Group as soon as possible to ease the transition, and task forces to help cope with AACR2 should be appointed without delay. This report summarizes alternative courses of action open to the committee and the discussion leading to these recommendations. (Author/RAA)
