Initial considerations for a nationwide data base by Edwin J Buchinski( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This network planning paper discusses creation and maintenance of authority files as one of the essential components of bibliographic control, which is a prerequisite to the access of information. Authority files impose consistency on the organization of information and thereby greatly facilitate information retrieval. In the creation of a union list of materials, these authority files become the normalizers of entries, making it possible for users to obtain maximum holdings information. This paper includes 19 task considerations for the creation of authority and bibliographic files in relation to background data, network configuration, and authority system design. Topics discussed include the library catalog, its functions, basic problems, and cataloging in a network context; the authority file; the national library network resources and participants; a marc format for the authority file; and guidelines for cataloging and design considerations for the file.

A nationwide location data base and service by Brett Butler( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This working paper provides an initial discussion point for the construction of a national location service as a component of a national library and information service network. The study described had a dual purpose: (1) expansion of the Register of Additional Locations (ral) data base by cooperative means, which involved identifying machine-readable data bases from which location reports could be obtained; and (2) a survey of users of the microform edition of the ral to determine their requirements for location information and what improvements could be made. The survey was expanded to include all subscribers to the National Union Catalog (nuc) who receive the ral as part of their annual subscriptions. A summary of responses, and detailed descriptions of the conclusions and recommendations are included. Distribution of the ral in machine-readable form is recommended, allowing local or national entities the option of developing such online access as they find desirable. (Author/MBR)
