BCUC Data Base Loading and BCLN User and Data Base Requirements Study. BCUC Replication Study, Design Phase I. Main Report.
Rosen, Lynn M.; Owen, G. W. Brian
This design phase study concerning the proposed replication of the DOBIS system for the British Columbia Library Network (BCLN) was conducted to determine the preferred strategy for the transfer and loading of the British Columbia Union Catalogue (BCUC) database currently resident at the University of Toronto's UTLAS system. User and database requirements are investigated in order to recommend a suitable database design for the BCLN DOBIS system. Other implementation tasks such as pilot usage projects are examined. Cost estimates and an implementation schedule for all tasks are included. A bibliography lists previous BCUC reports and documents, National Library DOBIS documents, journal articles, and miscellaneous publications. A 15-page supplementary report focusing on implementation from the perspective of an individual BCUC library is provided. (Author/FM)
