University of London Union List of Serials


This article first describes the circumstances which brought about the Union List of Serials project — the effect on collections of increasingly inadequate funds and the need for the rationalisation of the University's serials holdings. The objectives of the scheme are outlined, then the planning and systems design, which took place in 1974-75, are traced. With planning complete, the structure and technical aspects of the system are described, followed by a description of input to the file. Finally future plans are outlined.
