Preliminary Specifications (Hardware and Software) for a Center for Information Services. Final Report on Mechanized Information Services in the University Library, Phase I - Planning. Part 10.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Inst. of Library Research.
The general conclusions of the planning study on Mechanized Information Services in the University Library are that such services represent a desirable, even necessary, extension of the library's traditional functions. Preliminary specifications for such a library-based "Center for Information Services" (CIS) are presented in this report. Covered are three sets of issues: (1) administrative issues, including the organization of the CIS within the library, its administrative relationship to other campus activities, its staffing, its method of operation, its service load, and its financing; (2) hardware issues, including the library/CIS computer configuration, its requirements for space, and its relationship to other campus computing facilities; (3) software issues, including the requirements for generalized programs to handle file management and search, reference retrieval, text processing, numerical processing, and on-line processing.
