A feasibility study of a multi media catalogue by Bernard Chibnall( Book )

5 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this study was to identify various media in which material is to be cataloged and the information about each that is required; to consider an effective system of classification and cataloging which would be compatible with extant national and international systems; to outline the organization necessary to collect, process and disseminate the information and prepare estimates of cost; and to list distributors of materials from whom information would be sought and with whom contact would need to be maintained. The first section of the report considers the broad problems of collection and dissemination and attempts to relate them to other developments in the field. The second section describes the content of the ideal catalog; examines the cataloging being done by agencies in the field; and in the light of these two factors makes recommendations as to the feasibility of the catalog. The appendices include charts and tables, a sample budget, a suggested system of media classification, and a list of sources of materials.

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first stage of a study on the potential for collaborative development in library automation involved a study of more than 150 recent reports and papers, and visits to library sites in the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, West Germany, and the United States. Systems models were advanced to provide a basis for testing development proposals. Further study was recommended on the following topics: (1) minicomputer based library package systems; (2) the problems of handling non-MARC materials in computerized systems; and (3) the potential for a library oriented computer language. It was concluded that cooperation in library automation is both practical and desirable. (Author/EMH)
