Abstract
In 1990, Lancaster University Library began a programme of retrospective catalogue conversion, initially using data from the BNB on CD-ROM and more recently LoC CDMARC Bibliographic. The proportioin of stock in full machine readbale form has increased from 30% in Dec 90 to 72% in Jul 94. Reports on: technical details of the procedures used; staff training and work patterns; card removal and stock monitoring; success rates for matching true ISBNs (1969-1984) against BNB on CD-ROM; success rates for matching authors and titles (1950-70) against BNB on CD-ROM; success rates for matching true ISBNs (1969-84) against CDMARC; anticipated efficiency of downloading; costs of materials and staff; and overall costs. Discusses quality in respect of databases of OPAC and planned future developments
