Journal Control System by Batch Processing at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Klein, Ann S.; Passiakos, Margaret
The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) integrated computer programs for journal control have been extensively revised so that all journal ordering for ORNL, Y-12, and ORGDP is handled through this system. This series of programs provide: (1) management information in the form of cost, subscriber, and title statistics; (2) seven copy purchase requisitions; (3) claim letters to vendors relating to missing issues. In addition, computer check-in, notification of binding, and recording of journal arrival is provided for the Central Research Library. This report is divided into four sections. Section 1 describes the title and vendor backup files. Section 2 relates to the control of ordering, statistics, claiming, and preparation of purchase orders. Section 3 discusses the checking in, binding, listing of arrivals, and handling of subscription stoppages. Section 4 is concerned with programs which provide a Union List and authority file of all journals in the Knoxville-Oak Ridge area. The Appendix contains flow charts of the programs in the system.
