Investigation Concerning the Modification of the University of Illinois Computerized Serials Book Catalog to Achieve an Operative System at the University of Colorado Libraries.
Dougherty, Richard M.; Stephens, James G.
The objectives of the study were to record: (1) the problems encountered in interpreting and using the Illinois program documentation; (2) the modifications required to reconcile system incompatibilities and inefficiencies due to different computer configurations; (3) the input instruction modifications made to accommodate local library processing policies, i.e. cataloging and filing differences; and (4) the experiences of other secondary users of the University of Illinois Libraries automated serials system in order to identify common problems. The overall objective of the study was to identify the range of problems that a library is likely to encounter when it acquires programs and machine-readable data bases from systems developed elsewhere.
