Computer Produced Media Guides.
Jeffcott, Janet B.
To increase access to the media collection at the Madison Area Technical College (Wisconsin) a computer-produced key work index was created using an International Business Machine (IBM) 360 model 40 computer and a duplicating facility with offset capability. A standard 80 column IBM card was used reserving columns 1-9 for the media item number, 11-78 for the title, and column 80 for a location mark indicating the campus. Use of the automated media guide has increased media center circulation nearly 100%. Printout size was a problem, and a switch to printing on microfiche or accessing the media tape via cathode ray terminal was planned. (Author/DS)
