BIBCO ANNUAL REPORT
Oct. 2000-Sept. 2001
The Center for Research Library (CRL)
This past year the Cataloging Department at the Center for Research
Libraries (CRL) once again participated in the BIBCO program. There were
some staffing changes in the Dept. Our Dept. Head Adriana Pilecky-Dekajlo
left the Center in Nov. 2000. Another co-worker has been on maternity leave
since July 2001. The remaining group (3 catalogers) continues its
commitment to the BIBCO program. During fiscal year 2001 (Oct. 2000/Sept.
2001). CRL contributed 638 full level records and 31 core level records.
Most of our monographic collection is done as BIBCO. Most monographs are
unique and require substantial authority work.
Special cataloging projects in the last year included: Japanese 1940-1950
monographs; new acquisitions of the Area Studies Microform Projects;
18th-early 20th century Russian monographs.
In addition to the regular cataloging activities, staff in the Dept. were
involved in database maintenance of CRLCATALOG and updating databases on
the world wide web.
