Research and Demonstration for a Comprehensive Package of Computer Programs to Serve Community College Learning Resource Centers. Final Report.
Weiss, Jack A.
One of 15 members of the Northern Illinois Learning Resources Cooperative (NILRC), Elgin Community College served as host institution for a project to design, develop, test, and install computer programs in a community college resource center environment. The service functions identified for systems development included circulation, serial holdings, equipment scheduling, materials preview and rental control, and media production. The development for the project took place within an IBM technical environment (Model 370/125 computer) and is designed for ease of transfer to other medium-sized or larger IBM computer systems. Special technical features include modular programming, COBOL coding, online documentation and programming, database management system design (DL/1), CICS teleprocessing with command level coding, and the extensive use of tables in the system design. The project report includes results of the activities, problems encountered, and extensive appendices. (Author/MER)
