Results of a 1978 Association of Research Libraries (ARL) survey indicated that 68 (89%) of responding libraries utilized an automated cataloging system. Of those 68, 53 participated in the Ohio College Library Center (OCLC), five in BALLOTS, and the rest in other networks or local systems. At the beginning of this collection, a concise summary discusses implementation of automated cataloging, impact of automated cataloging systems, and system evaluation. The kit comprises: (1) five documents on planning and rationale for automated cataloging from University of Arizona, Colorado State University, Duke University, Michigan State University, and University of California/Berkeley; (2) documents on implementation of OCLC and SOLINET (Southeastern Library Network) from University of California/San Diego and Duke University; (3) training documents from Brigham Young University and Washington University; and (4) system evaluation reports from University of California/San Diego, University of Arizona, University of California/Davis, Washington University, and University of Chicago.
