Dedicated Versus Resource-Shared Library Computer Systems
Elchesen, Dennis R.
Special Libraries, 67, 7, 299-304, Jul 76
The experience with various computer implementations at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory is described and it is concluded that resource-shared facilities, such as ADP service centers and general-purpose time-sharing systems, are adequate for off-line, batch-mode library housekeeping and for current awareness services, but are not well suited to on-line, interactive housekeeping or to retrospective information retrieval.
