An Automated Library Circulation System: A Justification.
Harrell, Charles B.
This report for an automated circulation control system to replace the currently used automated off-line batch system discusses the general requirements for the requested system, the equipment needed, the planned uses and design of the proposed system, its utilization, its expected benefits, its estimated costs, the alternatives considered, and the projected implementation schedule. The equipment required consists of a dedicated minicomputer system supporting visual display or cathode ray terminals (CRT) and other peripheral equipment. Appendices summarize costs for the alternative systems, detail one-time costs for modifications to the present system to place it online, and chart annual operating costs for the alternative systems.
