International

"MARC format and cataloging books in non-Hebrew languages at the University of Haifa Library, Israel" by Adina Zur-Jiji appears in New Library World v. 104, no. 7, p. 286-299.
Reviews the development of cataloging in the Acquisitions-Catalog-Classification Department of the University of Haifa Library against the technological changes that have taken place throughout the world. These changes have strengthened the basic assumption that maximum use should be made of the bibliographic information available from other libraries in Israel and abroad for the university library to become part of the international bibliographic system and in order to save resources. The various stages of the work process are analysed and the role of MARC explained.
