Title:Utilization of the MARC II Format for Serials in an Inter-University Environment
Author(s):Sage, Charles R.
Subject(s):Library information networks
Library cooperation
Libraries --Automation
Abstract:This paper deals with a relatively small project undertaken by the libraries of the three state universities of Iowa that standardized their handling of machine-readable serial records using the MARC II format. The first section deals exclusively with programming techniques and conventions employed in the MARC II format. The second section describes procedures, generalization, and compromises that permitted the development of a generalized packaged program to serve three academic libraries. The third section outlines the early work environment with special emphasis placed on the library/data processing center relationship. Current environment is also described and projections are made about the next phase this project will enter. Conclusions drawn from this project bear on future handling of computer applications in libraries.
