Effects of Cataloging Volume at the Library of Congress on the Total Cataloging Costs of American Research Libraries
Kochen, Manfred; Segur, A. Bertrand
J Amer Soc Inform Sci, 21, 2, 112-127, 70 Mar-Apr
A mathematical model is used to justify having the Library of Congress do as much as possible of all the original cataloging for U.S. libraries. It is suggested that the potential savings due to decreased duplication of effort by local libraries could easily justify the use of a computer system at LC. (Author/JB)
