The recommendations of this study are: (1) The western provinces of Canada should move toward making available to the university libraries of the region, the prospective benefits of a magasystem organization during the next ten years. (2) There is no present need or justification for mounting an immediate crash program to create the computer-based subsystem. (3) Immediate work is fully justified toward clarification of the design elements, systems of governance, and essential limitations of the presumed resource-management subsystems. (4) As a necessary accessory to the previous recommendations, each university should develop internally and formalize at its highest levels a clear and detailed statement of the quality levels it requires for library and related informational services.
