Abstract: According to Richard Smiraglia, he and Ralph Papakhian were both "just this side of being angry young men" back in 1981, when they published their study "Music in the OCLC Online Union Catalog: A Review." The two were parallel heads of music cataloging at that time—Smiraglia at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne and Papakhian at Indiana University—and shared a desire, as Smiraglia put it, "to show the world where OCLC was good but also to show the music cataloging community where it was problematic."
