The SPRIG Union Catalogue of Periodicals on dBASE III

  When the Sport & Recreation Information Group (SPRIG) was founded in 1984 one of its aims was to improve bibliographic control of the literature of sport, physical education and recreation. The co-operative exploitation of resources was also considered to be of great importance. To these ends SPRIG has, since its founding, intended to publish a United Kingdom Catalogue of Periodicals in Sport, Physical Education and Recreation, containing holdings of all libraries and institutions participating in SPRIG. During 1986 the group approached Leeds Polytechnic School of Library & Information Studies for assistance and, as a result, the system analysis and design for the project was undertaken by the author as part of the Computer Studies component of the Postgraduate Diploma Course at the School.
