Government Documents Technical Processing Manual.
Adams, Leonard
This technical processing manual for federal documents is the culmination of efforts begun in 1981 to revise and implement procedures by the staff of the Government Documents Department of the University Library at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. While most of the general procedures in the manual are probably basic to most document depositories, the specific manner in which they are carried out may be applicable only to the setting at the University of Massachusetts. The manual is divided into 15 main sections dealing with all aspects of technical processing including cataloging rules; catalog card filing rules; binding government documents; and processing procedures for specific types of documents such as serials, microfiche, maps, oversized documents, and multivolume sets. These sections are followed by four addenda dealing with public service related procedures: (1) circulation overdues and billing, (2) government documents reserve shelf, (3) interlibrary loan requests, and (4) search procedures.
