Port, Idelle; Matthews, Joseph
This examination of the feasibility of implementing an automated circulation system within San Mateo County's Peninsula Library System (PLS) was undertaken to determine if the system should automate material circulation systemwide in order to reduce operating costs while improving circulation procedures and increasing patron access to system collections. The report describes PLS cooperative programs, current PLS circulation operations, PLS problems and objectives, circulation control alternatives, and a PLS action plan. Appendices and exhibits illustrate cost data, system configurations, budgetary information, and other considerations. (FM)
