I am reading draft proposals to the Division of Preservation and Access for
finding aid encoding projects, and attempting to advise applicants.  I have
an accumulation of rumor, uninformed comment, and perhaps truth about OCLC's
handling of AMC records, and linkages to Web sites.  I couldn't find any
information on OCLC's Web site about this, so would appreciate your pointing
me to the right place or telling me all I would need to know, from OCLC's
requirements for MARC/AMC records to associated costs and beyond, to help
applicants explain their projects to evaluators.

I'll send you queries as specific questions turn up, if I may.

Hi Barbara,
