ANYLTS' Cost Projections and Suggested Phase-In Schedules; A Report to the Board of Trustees.
Association of New York Libraries for Technical Services, Rochester.
This report, along with the separate report by Drake Sheahan/Stewart Dougall Consultants entitled: "Book Processing Facility Design" available as LI 001 919, should clear up two unfounded assumptions that (1) the actual processing of 2,500,000 volumes cannot be done at one location and (2) the printing times required are too unrealistic to be handled on the computer peripheral equipment. The Drake Sheahan/Stewart Dougall report indicates that 2,500,000 volumes can be processed more efficiently in one location than is now being done in 19 different locations or than could be done in 6 different locations. Cost projections in this document are based on data in that report. Estimates of computer print-times indicate that all the reports which must be handled, as well as all the cards which must be produced, are well within the capability of the equipment contemplated. The assumptions and methodology used to project unit costs are included. (NH)
