This paper describes a pilot project conducted at the Ohio State University Libraries to contract out the cataloging of Slavic books. Two dimensions were examined in this study: (1) the quality of bibliographic records produced by the vendor; and (2) the comparative costs for cataloging in-house vs. outsourcing the cataloging.
