Cataloging and classification quarterly. 23(1996) no.2, S.67-87

Abstract
Considers the issues involved in outsourcing library cataloguing, including: the need to have dependable, good quality, records available to outsource; suitable vendors; librarians able to communicate their needs; and a means of acquiring bibliographic records and processing relatively easily, at a reasonable price. Descibes the experience of the Fritz Library, North Dakota University in using PALS, an online system based on OCLC MARC, and outlines the pitfalls to be avoided for successful outsourcing
