1970: MARC Uses and Users


8th Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1970). Edited by Kathryn Luther Henderson

In April 1969, the Library of Congress began to distribute to other libraries its cataloging services on machine- readable tape. This event has often been compared in importance to that of 1901 when the Library first began to distribute its cataloging services. Because of the importance and potential of this new service the eighth annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing, conducted by the Division of University Extension and the Graduate School of Library Science of the University of Illinois, April 26-29, 1970, departed from its past consideration of all major aspects of library operations to concentrate on this specific aspect which can influence many different library operations. The intention was to review MARC after one year of operation, to present the current picture and future programs of the Library of Congress in regard to MARC and to assess the local, national and international potential of this service.
