Audrey N. Grosch


This paper describes development of a MARC serials format union catalog of serials called the Minnesota Union List of Serials (MULS). The Preliminary Edition, published August 1972, contains over 37,000 main entries in 1,566 text pages produced through photocomposition in News Gothic typefont using the full MARC character set. The total number of entries is over 59,000, including cross-references. Conceptualization and scope of the system as well as its design, data conversion, computer and programming support, photocomposition, costs, and problems are discussed.
