The purpose of the research and development described in this report is to implement and operate an on-line, computerized regional library system that makes available to faculty and students in individual colleges and universities the library resources throughout a region, while at the same time decelerating the rate of rise of per-student library costs. The major intellectual problem solved in the course of the investigation was the design of on-line computer files of bibliographic records and a technique for efficient retrieval of bibliographic data from the files employing derived, truncated search keys. The research and development culminated in the successful implementation of an on-line union catalog and shared cataloging system. A variety of libraries, large and small, had demonstrated that not only could the system slow the rate of rise of per-student costs, but also could effect net savings for libraries. The conclusions of this report are that the Ohio College Library Center (oclc) system does make available library resources throughout a region to individuals at a participating institution, that it decelerates the rate of rise of per-student costs and can effect net savings, and is transferrable to other regions.
