Planning and Implementing Academic Library Automation Programs: Proceedings of the Librarianship Training Institute Held at Louisiana Tech University, June 14-28, 1970.
Dyson, Sam A., Ed.
A library-oriented, concentrated course in the use of computers in libraries is a definite need in the profession. Librarians can learn the use of computers even though they have no background in data processing. The profession is also in need of a course syllabus which can be used either in a formal college course or in an in-service training situation. One of the by-products of this institute will be such a syllabus. Pre-institute activities included a programmed instruction course to acquaint participants with terminology, theory, and logic of computers and to furnish all participants with a common store of background knowledge. Eight manufacturer's representatives presented their firm's hardware capabilities, library applications, cost and learning arrangements, and impending developments of interest to the library user. Fourteen papers on automating library technical processes, problems in library technical processes, systems analysis and flowcharting, and COBOL programming language are included. (Author)
