Outline of Standards for Migration to Integrated Online System.
Millen, Celeste; And Others
Intended to describe an ideal system for William Madison Randall Library at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, this outline presents specific system requirements that would build on and enhance features available on the current system while moving toward a truly integrated system with built-in possibilities for expansion and improvements in the future. It is noted that the Ad Hoc Committee on System Requirements views migration as an opportunity to take full advantage of both existing and potential software capabilities. The first of 11 sections covers what are considered to be absolute essentials for a new system that would provide connectivity and interconnectivity, opening the online catalog system to departmental, campus, state, national, and international resources. The topics covered include standards, database conversion, system management, training and documentation, and handicapped access. The remaining sections focus on: (1) types of databases that must be integrated into one (public access catalog, circulation system, reserve system, cataloging system acquisitions, serials system, mail function, locally mounted databases, interface with off-campus systems, interlibrary loan, report functions, and online tutorial); (2) types of search access points; (3) search key characteristics; (4) screen characteristics; (5) printing options; (6) circulation; (7) reserve; (8) cataloging; (9) acquisitions; and (10) serials.
