The ALIS Online Circulation Control System of Danmarks Tekniske Bibliotek. Stockholm Papers in Library and Information Science.
Barnholdt, B.; Hojer-Pedersen, N.
This report on the Automated Library Information Control System (ALIS) of the National Technological Library of Denmark focuses on the circulation control functions of the integrated, distributed processing system, which also functions as an online catalog for a bibliographic database of approximately 120,000 records with library location codes. These records represent the current technological-scientific literature. An examination of the online component of the circulation control system discusses functions available to both borrowers and personnel, functions accessible to personnel only, and publication status for borrowers and for lending personnel. The batch processing component is discussed in terms of functions that produce output for internal use and functions that concern system maintenance. Figures illustrate the ALIS system configuration and functions of the system, and sample screen displays show part of an online session, a listing of current issues of a periodical, reservations for a sample publication, borrower loans and borrower reservations, publications charged out to a borrower, publications reserved, borrower's record, the charging out of a publication, and bar code creation.
