“We need to look seriously at opportunities to centralize and/or better coordinate services and data, while maintaining appropriate local control, as a way of reducing effort and complexity and of redirecting resources to focus on improving the user experience.”

“Better technological support for the cataloging process will assist catalogers in removing redundancies among and within institutions, allowing cataloging professionals to spend more time performing expert tasks.”
“… implementation issues associated with … innovation and cost reduction … include some technical but mostly organizational hurdles. To succeed … research libraries will need to master organizational change management and achieve unprecedented levels of collaboration with peers and external partners.
on the Future of Bibliographic Control” (January 2008)
“Although cataloging will and must continue to play a key role in bibliographic control, today there are many other sources of data that can and must be used to organize and provide access to the information universe. To take advantage of these sources, it is necessary to view bibliographic control as a distributed activity, not a centralized one.”
“The current model of the library as a stand-alone service provider to the university is obsolescent.”
“It is almost impossible to overstate the cultural shift that must occur for any of these ideas to really work.”
Scope Statement” (April 2009) http://libraries.universityofcalifornia.edu/about/uls/ngts/docs/NGTS_
“Radically new approaches to these operations are now called for in order to ensure that they are not only maximally efficient, but also transformatively effective.”
Method Based on Risk Assessment
a vision in which the system adopts a single set of standards and policies, eliminates duplication of effort and local variation in practice, and leverages access to language and subject expertise in order to create a single copy of a bibliographic record for use by the entire system.”
