Summary Report of the UCLA Biomedical Library Control System for Serials.
Fayollat, Jim; Luck, Don
The purpose of the serials record system is (1) to provide better service to the Library's patrons, (2) to attain a tighter control of existing records, and (3) to serve as a pilot project in the area of automated library record keeping, a recognized crucial area of necessary research in view of the current knowledge explosion. In this system, the Library's serials information has been stored on computer tapes, forming, essentially, a "tape Kardex". The tape is updated weekly by cards prepared by the staff and fed into the IBM 360/75 computer in the Center for the Health Sciences Computing Facility. The system provides a variety of lists, including a listing of the entire serials record of the library, a weekly list of the serial arrivals for the preceding week , a weekly notification of volumes which should be bound, monthly claiming lists, and title lists by subject or other designation. Included in this report are a description of the system, an outline of the essentials of the system and system flowcharts, and input and output samples. (Author/JB)
