Information Systems. Technical Report No. 12.
Parker, Edwin; And Others
An executive summary (chapter 1) provides an overview of this study to assess the needs and requirements of Educational Radio and Television of Iran (ERTI), and to analyze alternative information systems and services that could be used to facilitate the storage and retrieval of reports, books, films, and tapes in that organization. Chapter 2 includes detailed recommendations for a videotape and film library implemented with a manual card file-based system which would easily permit upgrading to computer-based technology at a later date. Chapter 3 provides detailed recommendations for implementation of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) system and services in the ERTI library. Chapter 4 provides an analysis of ERTI computing requirements and makes recommendations for meeting them with the Micro 4000 system, a hybrid (computer-microform) mini-computer-based system. Four appendices provide detailed documentation of this system. Chapters 5, 6 and 7 review the capabilities of information systems in use at U.S. television networks, at RAI in Italy, at NHK in Japan, at major U.S. film studios, and at major scholarly archives. In addition, an annotated bibliography of background information on film archives likely to be of interest to ERTI librarians and archivists is included. (VT)
