Epstein, Hank; Epstein, Susan Baerg
This report describing the current and future use of online automation technology in Connecticut libraries provides recommendations designed to assist Connecticut libraries in making more effective use of current systems, in selecting the most appropriate new systems, and by providing a basis for effective statewide planning that will take advantage of current and future automation technology. The report is presented in four major parts: (1) the introduction and executive summary, containing an overview, a description of the report audience, and priorities for readers; (2) current systems and the need for a statewide database describing the existing automation environment and defining the key component for future automation activities; (3) current plans and future systems, describing the current commercial and not-for-profit automated services and planned extensions to these services; and (4) 1980-1985: a five-year plan, defining the specific actions, projects, committees, task teams, etc. required to carry out report recommendations.
