Development of a Computerized System to Catalog and Book Videotapes.
Brunk, Richard Lee
The purpose of this project was to develop a computerized videotape catalog and booking system to serve school personnel in the 109 schools of Pinellas County, Florida. This system was designed to eliminate manual file maintenance, decrease time spent in booking, shipping, and receiving videotapes, and reduce the cost of producing and updating videotape catalogs. Results of the interviews and survey conducted during the 6-month period following the introduction of the system indicated that booking procedures were simplified and confirmations were made more rapidly. Professional staff time involved in manual file maintenance was eliminated, and booking, shipping, and receiving time was reduced. The respondents to the questionnaire provided evidence that the videotape microfiche catalog and booking system were more effective than the manual system, and production costs for the new microfiche catalog were less than for the previous catalogs. This system was adopted for permanent use in the Pinellas County School District. Twenty-two references are listed. (Author/LLS)
