Library Automation Standards and Guidelines. Revised.
Texas State Library, Austin. Library Development Div.
This publication provides standards and guidelines addressing a variety of issues in the area of library automation in Texas. In addition to the core elements of a library automated system (public access catalog, cataloging, circulation, acquisitions, and serials), remote access, imaging, and full-text document management are included. This document provides guidance for librarians in Texas in evaluating library technology. The standards address only a limited number of topics, and are not sufficient by themselves for developing a comprehensive set of specifications. The standards and guidelines are divided into six categories: (1) Applicability; (2) Planning; (3) Bibliographic Record Creation; (4) Machine-Readable Records; (5) The Bibliographic Database; and (6) The System.
