The Placer Media Management System or Using the Computer in the Small Film Library.
In describing this media management system, which currently serves 84 public schools (K-12) in four rural counties east of Sacramento, this report suggests that the computer is a practical solution for film libraries trying to keep pace with increased use while not reducing their expenditures for purchasing and repairing film stock. The major parts of the description include the creation of its film catalog, film booking procedures and computer programs, equipment (present and future), and a five-year projection (1978-1983). Also discussed are the main entry and/or record size, the alliance of the system with the computer department, the potential for interfacing with the system, other computerized film booking operations, and the secrets of financing this computerized management system. Appendices present input worksheets, the subject headings used, the system's media catalogs, various examples of ICR (input, confirmation, and rejection) reports, and other data sheets. (JD)
