Issues in retrospective conversion : report of a study conducted for the Council on Library Resources by Jutta Reed-Scott( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Initiated by the Council on Library Resources, this study assessed the current level of retrospective conversion and explored the primary issues that need attention if libraries are to convert their bibliographical files to machine-readable form. Data were obtained from a literature review, contact with a number of libraries currently engaged in retrospective conversion, and information gathered from three major American utilities, several service centers, and regional networks. The report is organized in four major sections: (1) an overall framework for analyzing retrospective conversion, including a definition, a brief summary of past efforts to develop a coordinated strategy, a description of current activity, and a look at future developments; (2) major approaches to and library strategies for retrospective conversion; (3) the economics of retrospective conversion and the quest for a national database; and (4) five strategic options for a systematic approach, recommendations for a national strategy, and a proposed implementation strategy. A selected bibliography and a brief description of the Association of Research Libraries (arl) and Research Libraries Group, Inc., National Collections Inventory Project are included. (Thc)
Classification schedules as subject enhancement in online catalogs : a review of a conference sponsored by Forest Press, the OCLC Online Computer Library Center, and the Council on Library Resources by Carol A Mandel( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a synthesis of the ideas and issues developed at a conference convened to review the results of the Dewey Decimal Classification Online Project and explore the potential for future use of the Dewey Decimal Classification (ddc) and Library of Congress Classification (lcc) schedules in online library catalogs. Conference discussion centered around the themes of subject search enhancements for the next generation of online catalogs, the future role of class number searching in online catalogs, and the feasibility of using machine-readable lcc and ddc schedules online. Six broad conclusions for the future are outlined: (1) all operational online catalogs should include the subject search features that have already proven necessary; (2) subject search strategies should be explored; (3) it is worthwhile to build the ddc into a classification authority file, available in machine-readable form for use as a cataloger's tool and in online catalogs; (4) using the Dewey Online Catalog (doc) as a prototype, it is worthwhile to continue to refine the design of a ddc online catalog; (5) displays of related terms will be a valuable search enhancement in future online catalogs; and (6) lcc will eventually be made machine-readable.

Subject access in the online catalog : a report by Carol A Mandel( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This review of the research on subject access to library collections focuses on the problems of and prospects for improved online subject access to library collections. Summaries of the general findings of studies on library catalog use and catalog users and some reasons for the frequent failure of subject searches in library catalogs are followed by a discussion of the use of "failure analysis" as a technique in studies of automated information retrieval systems. The advantages and disadvantages of free text searching are reviewed, the feasibility of using the Preserved Context Indexing System (precis) to supplement Library of Congress Subject Headings is briefly considered, and some of the conclusions drawn from studies of library users' needs are presented. Research on the enrichment of cataloging records using free text descriptors, on enhancing currently used subject access systems such as Library of Congress Subject Headings, and on ensuring the effectiveness of the user interface with an online catalog is also discussed. Six recommendations are made for the improvement of subject access in online catalogs, and a 41-item reference list is included. (Jl)
