Applications of Minicomputers to Library and Related Problems. Papers Presented at the 1974 Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing, April 28-May 1, 1974.
Lancaster, F. Wilfrid, Ed.
More than 100 representatives from various types of libraries attended a clinic on the current and future applications of minicomputers in library operations. Among the library-related problems considered were: (1) circulation and control, (2) cataloging, (3) education and training, (4) information retrieval, (5) acquisitions, and (6) serials control. For some of the applications considered, the minicomputer is a stand-alone unit, while in others it is linked to larger systems within or outside the library. Some of the institutions used as examples for alternative uses of minicomputers were Stanford University, University of Chicago, University of Maryland, and University of Minnesota. Alternative computer manufacturer's equipment is also described. (DGC)
