The CSUS HyperCard Library Directory.
Metzger, Deborah A.
This report describes the "Library Directory" computer program which is used to help library patrons of California State University, Sacramento (CSUS) locate information about specific subject collections and/or service areas through a combination of graphics and text. The program is written on Hypercard 1.2.0., runs on a Macintosh computer with a 20mb hard disk, and does not require the use of a keyboard. The Directory consists of six information units: (1) General Information (including interlibrary loan, the media center, copying facilities, the reserve room, archives, borrowing privileges, and library hours); (2) Specific Subject (locating information in CSUS' subject divided library); (3) How to Find Books (using the card catalog, reading Library of Congress--LC-- call numbers, locating materials by floors); (4) A Quick Tour of the Library (contains floor maps of all five floors); (5) A Guide to Floor Locations (allows a shortcut to the specific call number; and (6) Finding Journals and Newspapers (explains periodical and newspaper organization, indexes, and abstracts). Sample screens for each of the six sections are included, and permission is granted by the author for full use and/or adaptation of the stacks provided that recognition is properly and duly noted.
