The Effective Use of Automation in Wisconsin Libraries, 1981-1985.
Epstein, Hank; Epstein, Susan Baerg
Intended to provide recommendations which will permit Wisconsin libraries to make more effective use of current automated systems, select the most appropriate new systems, and provide a basis for statewide library automation planning, this report describes the current and future use of automation technology in that state's libraries. Its four major sections discuss the following: (1) highlights of the report and the report audience; (2) the existing automation environment in Wisconsin, online catalogs, and a statewide database; (3) current major commercial and not-for-profit automated services and planned extensions to these services, including circulation systems, cataloging systems, acquisition systems, serials systems, and search services; and (4) a 5-year plan defining the specific actions, projects, committees, and task teams needed to carry out the report recommendations.
