Title:Project LOC: Centralized Processing of Local Collections

Project LOC
Abstract:Project LOG arose from the convergence of two factors: a growing awareness in the great libraries of Great Britain of the potential utility of computers in dealing with their large-scale processing problems, and a very long-standing need for the provision of information about the collections of early books in the college libraries of the Universities of Oxford and Cam- bridge. These college libraries are variously cataloged, both in physical form of the catalog and in degree of competence with which the records have been created. Some libraries have published their catalogs, others have barely listed their holdings. The central libraries, the Bodleian at Oxford and the University Library at Cambridge, have no responsibility for the college libraries and no authority in matters concerning them. In both universities, however, there have been movements, over the past 300 years, to produce union catalogs of the collections in the universities as a whole.
