Those of us who are in districts where catalogs have been merged to form a district or a union catalog can attest to the importance of good records.  I agree with Bill on the importance of access points and subject heading, but it is very easy to see the importance of good records when a district merges a catalog, and 50 different versions of HATCHET (or any other popular book) show up after the merge.  Maybe some librarians  in Weber, Jordan, Canyons, and other districts can comment on this aspect of good records and what really constitutes a "good" record.
