Hello Everyone,

We would like as many ideas, comments, etc. on the best way to go about
weeding a film collection that has not had that procedure done before. We
are looking at cataloging our entire collection (7800 titles) to the
library cataloging system, and we would like to get ideas on the best
way(s) of doing that process, therefore eliminating some titles to catalog.
The titles are currently cataloged using FileMakerPro. Our current method
is quite simple. We have not searched OCLC in our process. We have simply
taken information from the carton that the film originally was shipped in.

It's a BIG project, but we must start somewhere.

Thanks in advance.

Pamela Bruce
