Changing Roles: Original Cataloging by Paraprofessionals in ARL Libraries.
Mohr, Deborah A.; Schuneman, Anita
Library Resources & Technical Services, v41 n3 p205-18 Jul 1997
Investigates the nature of paraprofessionals' work in original cataloging activities at ARL (Association of Research Libraries) institutions and compares findings with those of an earlier study. Findings reveal 77.1% of the cataloging department heads reported paraprofessional involvement in one or more cataloging activities. Reasons cited included paraprofessional career development and cost savings. Advantages and disadvantages were also noted. (Author/AEF)
