System Development Corporation; [processed by Clearinghouse for Federal Scientific and Technical Information of the U.S. Department of Commerce for Defense Documentation Center, Defense Supply Agency, Alexandria, Va.,], 1964 - Libraries - 71 pages
System Development Corporation, under contract with Los Angeles State College, undertook a joint study with the Library Staff to investigate: (1) utilizing EDP equipment for any of the clerical procedures necessitated by reclassification of books classified by the Dewey Decimal System; (2) utilizing any EDP procedures developed for reclassification in the handling of new acquisition; and (3) the possibility of converting from a card catalog to a book catalog. This was not a study of library automation, but was concerned with the implementation of the LC classification system. Book catalogs, Technical Services, and reclassification are discussed. (Author).
