This memo supersedes AMIGOS Memorandum 76-17; it includes the new pricing for the
accessions list service. The Ohio College Library Center produces at the request of a
participating library, lists of the current accessions of that library which have been
cataloged on the OCLC on-line system. This service provides the library with a wellformatted,
accurate list of accessions which may be readily reproduced for distribution to
patrons of the library.
Accessions lists may be obtained which have been ordered with or without regard for the
particular holding library within the institution. If the list is to be subdivided by
holding library, choose IHolding Libraryl as the primary sort sequence, otherwise choose
IInstitution l. Within the primary sort sequence, the lists may be ordered either by
subject or by call number. The first topical (650) subject heading in the bibliographic
record is used as ISubjectl. The call number closest to the 049 field is employed in the
call number ordering. Examples of accessions lists are given on page 2 (two) of this
