Title
Retrospective catalogue conversion : a national study and a discussion based on selected literature

Abstract
Reports results of a study, initiated in the UK by the Follett Implementation Group on Information Technology (FIGIT), to assess whether a national retrospective catalogue conversion programme would be justified and what the implications would be of much wider access not only for the records so converted but also for the actual collections. The study aimed to acquire data on numbers of items required to be converted in the librarires of institutions of higher education and used 3 approaches to obtain the information: a questionnaire survey (to obtain actual data on numbers of records); informal talks with bibliographic records suppliers (to determine costs); and a literature survey and focused consultation exercise (to justify national funding for retrospective conversion). The study was only concerned with bibliographic items, excluded non print materials, and considered local, national and international aspects
