JAYCOR has determined that the Naval Center for Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence Library requires a database containing the holdings of its collection in order to make efficient use of both the Library and its resources. Bibliographic information contained in the database should conform to accepted Library procedures, namely the Library of Congress classification scheme and the AACRII cataloging. The OCLC database and LS2000 provide the resources necessary to catalog and manage the circulation of library materials. OCLC also promotes standardization in cataloging by providing LC cataloging obtained for the Library of Congress and other libraries participating in the OCLC system. OCLC was established in 1967 to develop a cooperative, computerized regional network for its 54 Ohio member college libraries. The system has expanded since to a database containing bibliographic information created by the cooperative cataloging efforts of over 3,500 participating libraries nationwide. OCLCs database is the largest machine-readable file of bibliographic information in the world and is continually growing. LS2000 system is an integrated online system that provides catalog access, bibliographic control and circulation control. It was installed at the main NRL Library in 1986 and obtained for the NCARAI Library through NRL at no cost. The LS2000 system will provide access to the NCARAI catalog for all researchers at the Center via terminals. JAYCOR determined that interfacing with OCLC and LS2000 provides a fast and economical way to catalog, classify, and organize the materials currently owned by the Library.
