A Computerized Special Collections Inventory System at the Wayne State University Libraries.
Navarre, Carolyn E.; Stovall, Anthony M.
This paper describes a locally-developed multi-purpose system that stores data about any number of special collections within the libraries and prints that data in a number of formats on demand or as scheduled reports. The system operates on an IBM 360/67 dual processer with data entry via a teleprocessing system. The key to the file is the call number, which is converted into a sort key. The number of hours of programing and other activities associated with the development, testing, and implementation of the system are given. (Author)
