Selection and Cataloging for an Automated Retrieval Collection: Viewpoint of a Cataloger
Skinner, Debra G.
Journal of Access Services, v7 n1 p33-44 2010
In the summer of 2004, Georgia Southern University began a library construction project that was to last 4 years. An important aspect was the installation of an Automated Retrieval System (ARC) to house a substantial portion of the library collections so that more space could be available for students, faculty, and the services to meet their needs. This paper traces the development of the use of the ARC to house collections, with emphasis on how materials were selected for the two phases of the project and how catalogers have adapted to the idea of collections that can only be browsed virtually.
