A Position Paper on the Proposed Virginia Integrated Library Network.
McCabe, Gerard B.; And Others
In the spring of 1978, the Virginia State Library commissioned The Computer Company to conduct a feasibility study of the possibility of establishing a statewide library network for the Commonwealth of Virginia. In this report, the authors respond to that study by identifying three areas of concern for academic libraries: (1) the need for academic libraries in Virginia to acquire online circulation control systems--the development of a statewide circulation system; (2) the need to clarify the right and responsibility of academic libraries to participate in national networks--the establishment of a state policy for such participation; (3) the need for careful study and planning for the integrated library network proposed in the study--a recommendation to study, weigh, and debate the concepts and standards essential to such a network. Attached to the report is an outline on circulation control and data base utility. (Author)
