Abstract: A survey study of eight university libraries in Rajasthan (India) to find out the cause of backlogging in catalogue and the issues related to it identified the main reasons as the lack of technical manpower & machine use and addition of more books in the libraries than can be processed. Variables such as, cataloguing procedure, typing output, reasons for backlogging, use of machine for controlling backlog, cataloguing tools, and filing & frequency are the key determinants. The respondents have no objection to the introduction of pre-natal cataloguing and printed cards service in addition to application of computers for cataloging. 'With the observed decline of using machines for cataloguing purpose, the backlogging may witness an increase in the next decade, unless urgent steps are taken with increased automation.
