Abstract:
Reviews the impact of technology on rare book cataloging in the United States from 1973-1983, which changed many of the practices and expectations of rare book and special collections librarians. Although the new library technologies were designed chiefly to handle modern, non-precious materials, these technologies have gradually been enhanced by the concerted efforts of rare book and special collections librarians. Those who create and control library computer systems began to acknowledge and accommodate the differing needs of rare and precious materials. Predicts that the years following would hold out the prospect of fewer large-scale changes and more consolidation of gains.
