Project of retroconversion of the card catalogues of Faculty of Arts Library

Summary: Between 2013 and 2014 a unique project of retroconversion of bibliographic data took place at the Library of the Faculty of Arts, Charles University. The project was partially supported by the VISK 5 grant and in its two years 400 000 paper catalogue cards were processed and made accessible through the Central Catalogue of the Charles University and the Union Catalogue of the Czech Republic. The classic retrospective processing of the catalogue would have taken ca. 40 years. The retroconversion method has brought about both a significant increase in the speed of the processing of the library catalogue as well as an improvement in its accessibility.
