The role of the Library of Congress in the evolving national network : a study commissioned by the Library of Congress Network Development Office and funded by the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science by Lawrence F Buckland( Book )

11 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of the role of the Library of Congress (lc) in the emerging national information network analyzed data gathered from 23 libraries and network organizations, and found that lc should assume leadership in network development activities by performing the major coordinating role in applying technology and acquiring funding for the technical and standards-related tasks required to link federal, multistate, state, and local systems into the national network. Other recommended activities include continuing LC's role in the creation and distribution of cataloging and authority control data, increasing its cataloging coverage, and reducing cataloging delays; establishing and maintaining an online national bibliographic database of cataloging and authority data to be accessed as a source of last resort by national network participants; continuing to create and maintain a national union catalog in machine-readable form for use by network participants; and expanding its information and training programs to inform the library community about the development and operational status of its activities and those of the network. Appendices list the study's advisory committee and the libraries and networks surveyed. (Fm)

Public/rivate Sector Interactions: The Implications for Networking. a Discussion Report Prepared by the Network Advisory Committee by Library of Congress( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

At a 2-day meeting in October 1982, the Library of Congress Network Advisory Committee (nac) members discussed the complex issues involved in public and private sector interactions and their relationship to networking activities. The report, "Public Sector/Private Sector Interaction in Providing Information Services," prepared by the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (nclis), Public Sector/Private Sector Task Force, was used as a core document. In addition, nac commissioned a concept paper by Glyn Evans, Executive Director, suny/oclc. Discussion groups were formed to explore how the principles and recommendations of the report to nclis related to special services provided by either a public or private sector agency. The groups concluded that while equity of access and preservation were of concern, these services could, with appropriate safeguards, be supplied by either sector. In addition to the report of the meeting, this document includes a list of the nac members, an executive summary, and four appendices: (1) a background reading list; (2) a review and summary of the nclis task force report by Robert M. Hayes of the University of California, Los Angeles; (3) Glyn Evans' discussion paper; and (4) an outline of nac actions on the nclis task force report. (Dmc)

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study conducted to provide background data for the systematic development of the library bibliographic component of a national network analyzes the procedures used in producing the National Union Catalog (nuc), the nationwide union catalog in card form maintained at the Library of Congress (lc), and examines the variations found in records as they are integrated into the file. The report discusses nuc operations and workflow, characteristics of reporting libraries, differences in headings between outside reports to the nuc and lc records, and differences in bibliographic description between outside reports to the nuc and lc records. Conclusions for a nationwide database derived from the analysis of processes in the catalog publication division are presented along with recommendations for future investigation. Tables and figures are provided. (Fm)

This report presents an analysis of the search query arguments of several major bibliographic utilities and shows the commonalities and differences of the query structure among the various systems. The report illustrates a symbolic metalanguage that was developed to describe and compare the search arguments. In addition, status and error messages used in conjunction with search queries that should be incorporated in the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (nclis) National Bureau of Standards (nbs) Applications Level Protocol are specified. The report recommends that certain search argument formats be standardized for computer-to-computer communications and that more work be performed in the analysis of bibliographic response formats on the various systems. Data about the following systems are included: the Library of Congress, the National Library of Medicine, oclc, the University of Chicago, the Washington Library Network, Northwestern University, and the Research Libraries Information Network.
