Shaw, Debora, Ed.
This collection explores the human aspect of the automation and reautomation of library functions as both library staff and library users are expected to adapt to and use computers. A brief introduction by Debora Shaw sets the stage for the following papers: (1) "Terminal Paralysis, or Showdown at the Interface" (Sara Fine); (2) "Learning from Office Automation--Ergonomics and Human Impact" (Marvin J. Dainoff); (3) "Personnel Considerations in Library Automation" (Margaret Myers); (4) "Automation Planning and Implementation--Library and Vendor Responsibilities" (Jane Burke); (5) "Online Catalogs and Library Users" (Anne Gilliland); (6) "Online Catalogs and Specialized Clienteles--Children and Youth" (Susan Roman); (7) "Online Catalogs and Specialized Clienteles--Handicapped and Other Populations" (Leslie Edmonds); (8) "Designing Effective Instructional Brochures for Online Catalogs" (Mark W. Arends); and (9) "Library Privacy in Context" (Jonathan Pratter). The edited transcript of a panel discussion on staff involvement in library automation is also included and an index is provided.
