Becker, Joseph; Pulsifer, Josephine S.
A course was developed as part of the Catholic University of America's Continuing Library Education Project, which was designed to provide present or future library administrators with an understanding of the issues and techniques involved in library automation. The course also can be used by individuals or study groups who are analyzing the feasibility of automation of their library processes or in the process of automating. The course is divided into eight units of study: 1) librarians and automation, 2) computer technology, 3) systems analysis and implementation, 4) MARC program, 5) library clerical processes, 6) reference services, 7) related technologies, and 8) library networks. Each unit consists of an introduction, statements of purpose and student behavioral objectives, detailed outline, syllabus and list of references. A general bibliography of basic sources of information and additional references completes this volume. (Author/SL)
