Title:The book catalogs of the Los Angeles County Public Library including a discussion led by Bruce Stallard

Abstract:The decision to issue our catalog in book form was made after a study of mechanization indicated that this format could best meet the needs of the field staff and the public served by the County Library system. It was seen that catalog production by data processing techniques could be achieved for all branches at a low cost per unit in comparison with the expense of maintaining traditional card catalogs at the service outlets. To present the setting in which economy and mechanization proved to be so important, some background information is in order.
