Considers the introduction of OCLC and other technology in public libraries as a response to reduced budgets and an increased demand for information. Discusses the history of cataloguing, the development of new cataloguing systems, bibliographic record editing, and methods of processing materials. Surmises that OCLC has been a sound investment in forging a new link between acquisitions and cataloguing, as well as reducing cost per cataloguing unit.
