The role of the Library of Congress in the evolving national network : a study commissioned by the Library of Congress Network Development Office and funded by the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science by Lawrence F Buckland( Book )

10 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of the role of the Library of Congress (lc) in the emerging national information network analyzed data gathered from 23 libraries and network organizations, and found that lc should assume leadership in network development activities by performing the major coordinating role in applying technology and acquiring funding for the technical and standards-related tasks required to link federal, multistate, state, and local systems into the national network. Other recommended activities include continuing LC's role in the creation and distribution of cataloging and authority control data, increasing its cataloging coverage, and reducing cataloging delays; establishing and maintaining an online national bibliographic database of cataloging and authority data to be accessed as a source of last resort by national network participants; continuing to create and maintain a national union catalog in machine-readable form for use by network participants; and expanding its information and training programs to inform the library community about the development and operational status of its activities and those of the network. Appendices list the study's advisory committee and the libraries and networks surveyed. (Fm)

Investigation of the searching efficiency and cost of creating a remote access catalog for the New York State Library : final report by Lawrence F Buckland( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From experimental work performed, and reported upon in this document, it is concluded that converting the New York State Library (nysl) shelf list sample to machine readable form, and searching this shelf list using a remote access catalog are technically sound concepts though the capital costs of data conversion and system installation will be substantial. The two primary areas of investigation covered in this report are: (1) pilot conversion to machine readable form of a portion of the nysl shelf list; the purpose of this conversion process itself being the creation of a file of machine readable records which can be searched by a computer under the control of a telecommunication computer terminal. The purpose of the pilot conversion test is to determine costs of conversion, and any unusual technical problems; and (2) experimentation with, and use of, the initial product of the pilot conversion in catalog searching. The purpose of the search test is to determine technical feasibility of the search process where a user must formulate a query as a logical combination of alphabetic search words, a process far different than the mental eye-brain scanning of entries on catalog cards.

Data input for publishers : state-of-the-art report by Lawrence F Buckland( Book )

2 editions published between 1980 and 1984 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended to serve as a guide for selecting the most suitable automated method for preparing and sending papers for publication, this report briefly describes data entry and editing procedures available from one publisher (Inforonics) and provides an estimate of processing costs for each procedure. The procedures, arranged in order of increasing equipment cost, include optical character recognition (ocr), the use of microcomputers and home computers, utilization of a personal computer supplied by Inforonics and Inforonics' data input software known as TexTerm, data entry using word processors, use of a dedicated microcomputer for database input, batch data entry using in-house computer centers, and online data entry to Inforonics' mainframe computer. Two final sections deal with special procedures for encoding data backlogs when converting a large reference publication to a mechanized system, and the lack of satisfactory character and text coding standards. It is recommended that authors generally adopt their vendor's coding standard in the absence of a publishing industry-wide standard. (Esr)

Survey of Automated Library Systems Phase I. Final Report by Lawrence F Buckland( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Described in this report are the results of a survey of 27 libraries which had in operation 40 mechanized systems for acquisition, cataloging and circulation control. The libraries were selected on the basis of advanced performance in the state of the art of library automation. The overall trends show libraries increasing their use of on-line systems and basic assembly language programming, and moving into the area of catalog mechanization. The data describing each library activity was collected by an interview consisting of a presentation by the library staff and the completion of a questionnaire. A bibliography of published system descriptions and a directory of addresses and telephone numbers of the principal staff members of the libraries visited is included. The information presented in the report should be useful in ascertaining what has already been mechanized in acquisition, cataloging and circulation control, whether it is available for transfer to another installation, and what detailed functions it mechanizes. A second use of the information in the report is as an automation check list if one is designing his own mechanized library system. (Author/SJ)
