SUMMARY. This paper will put forth some ideas about how library technical services are dealing with “the information revolution” and what impact this has on library collections and access to them. An attempt is made here to survey some of the key factors which are contributing to the gradual redefinition of access, collections and technical services. These include the changing role of technical services and cataloging departments, the impact of electronic and digital materials on library acquisitions and processing, implications of applying national cataloging standards, local cataloging practices, book vendors and the use of their records in library catalogs, remote storage decisions, and the role that library schools play in educating new generations of cataloging professionals
