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 )

10 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)

Study of message text formats, bibliographic search queries by Philip L Long( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

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.
