A serials union catalogue for the UK?


Tony Kidd


This article gives a summary of the process and recommendations of the recent Feasibility Study on the establishment of a UK National Union Catalogue, with reference to the serials aspects of the study. An outline of the methods used to progress the study is given - sample surveys, visits to 'key players', investigation of the technological possibilities. The importance of the provision of high quality bibliographic and holdings records is stressed, as is the need to link value-added services - e.g. document delivery, electronic access - to the establishment of any union catalogue structure.
