Boston College Libraries: Systems, Services, Resources.
Channing, Rhoda K., Ed.; Stalker, John C., Ed.
Prepared to inform and update Boston College faculty and administrative personnel on the impact of automation and resource sharing on the Boston College library system and the services it provides, this report contains sections on: OCLC and its interlibrary loan subsystem; the consortia in which the Boston College libraries participate; present and future serials handling systems at Boston College; the totally-integrated automated system anticipated for the new central library (including a public online catalog); and the relationship of faculty research and teaching needs to collection development, media services, bibliographic instruction programs, and special collections. The emphasis throughout is on the evolution of systems and services to aid faculty in teaching and research. Included are numerous illustrations, a glossary of library terms, and a directory of Boston College library personnel. (Author/JL)
