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

8 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 206 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)

Methodology and background information to assist the planning of serials cancellations and cooperative serials collection in the health sciences by Charles P Bourne( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To aid in controlling the cost of acquisitions in a research library, techniques were developed for the rational selection of serial titles for cancellation. The context for the proposed methodology was a network or multicampus environment rather than an individual library, and it was tested with a specific body of health sciences serial titles in the University of California library system and in Region xi of the National Library of Medicine's Biomedical Communications Network. Background data was collected on about 600 current foreign language serial titles. Employing several different decision rules, estimates were made of the subscription cost savings that might be realized in the network. It appeared feasible to extend the same methodology to other groups of serial titles. (Author/DGC)

Feasibility of cooperative collecting of exotic foreign language serial titles among health sciences libraries in California by Dorothy Gregor( Book )

4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The feasibility of developing cooperative arrangements for sharing exotic foreign language serial titles among the health sciences libraries of California was investigated. Preliminary circulation counts indicated that 74 percent of the 77 titles counted had circulated twice a year or less and that the health sciences libraries do maintain multiple subscriptions to those titles. Because the National Library of Medicine is encouraging cooperative programs among health sciences libraries and because the libraries represented in this study now have access to an on-line serials data base to aid in the implementation of such arrangements, there exist the incentive and the means to initiate some cooperative arrangements. The study results indicate that exotic foreign language serials might be a useful category with which to begin. Some particular titles are suggested for consideration. (Author/DGC)
