A Survey of Automated Activities in the Libraries of the United States, Volume 1.
Patrinostro, Frank S., Comp.; Sanders, Nancy P., Ed.
This first volume of a proposed twelve volume series of surveys on library automation is based on - besides information gathered by the survey - the results of a literature search to locate any recently published information concerning the reported activities. These are cited below their respective entries to provide additional information about significant projects. Effort was made to include commercial operations offering data tapes or other similar services on a rent, lease or sale basis. A statistical analysis of the applications reported was made to get a clearer picture of how automation was being applied to libraries. The index is in the form of an outline, which is presented separately in Part II. This is followed by an Index to Applications in which each heading in the outline is followed by a list of the libraries reporting automation of that application. Following this index there is a Term Index to the outline. The last section of the Index to Applications includes some special topics, such as applications dealing with government publications. The final part of the index lists all respondents by type of library. (Author/NH)
