This will vary from library to library. There are a number of databases that Ivy Tech subscribes to that might help you find information on processing speed. One is Academic Search Premier. Try a search like this:
results include articles like Rush Processing from the Journal of Academic Librarianship. Similar searches in ProQuest Research Library yield articles like “Cataloging and Processing: Getting It on the Shelf So It Can Go Out the Door!” from School Library Monthly.
If you’re interested in e-books, Understanding the Business of Library Acquisitions is an excellent resource. Some steps in processing a book are listed on p.267-268. It is available in the EBSCO E-books database.
There are also more resources available to you in the IU East library in Hayes Hall. Of these, one of the most prominent is the Library, Information Science, and Technology Abstracts database. Use a search in this database similar to the one linked above for Academic Search Premier.
Let me know if I can be of any help in your search.
