Abstract:In the world of libraries and their related institutions, the Massachusetts Central Library Processing Service is an unusual and unique organization. It is probably the only automated processing center that performs the full spec- trum of monographic technical processing routines from the production of selection materials through the ordering, fiscal accounting, cataloging, and bibliographic display functions. It provides to the participant libraries many products such as catalog cards, book labels, pockets, book catalogs, special listings, and financial statements. The service has been in actual production since July 1970, and its success has strongly aided the development and effectiveness of the libraries in the higher education system in Massachusetts.
