OCLC in retrospect : a review of the impact of the OCLC system on the administration of a large university technical services operations by Joseph Z Nitecki( Book )

7 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Temple University began use of the Ohio College Library Center (oclc) system in January 1972. Implementation involved the development of detailed processing operation procedures. A comparison of manual and automated procedures at Temple illustrated the difficulties of changing from one system to the other and of the automated system itself. Statistical reports of the program up to Spring 1975 showed the need to expand facilities with more computer terminals. Manual searching of proof slip files was shown to be faster than computer searching, but oclc cataloging had a clear advantage over manual operations in all tasks except the preparation of instructions in original cataloging. Problems perceived in the oclc system included the difficulty of projecting needed capacity and probable costs of the system and the need for specifying an appropriate governing structure to facilitate long-range planning. A 41-reference bibliography is appended. (Kb)

Temple University Libraries in the Mid-Seventies: A Status Report by Joseph Z Nitecki( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Present central library operations are discussed in terms of emerging needs and possible direction for future development. Library objectives include acquiring and organizing relevant records of knowledge, and providing satisfactory information service standards. Issues relating to objectives include the library's involvement in planning and developing educational programs, support of programs offered, and a well selected professional staff, strong in subjects relevant to library coverage and involved in continuing education. Library organization and structure are concerned with the centralization of library services within the university, and the functional arrangement of activities within the library. At present, Temple's library structure is a combination of centralized and decentralized services. Issues involving personnel are consultative management, professional self-governance, unionization, and affirmative action policies. The library's budget recommendations are based on a balanced budget principle, and library department heads' participation. Collection development is based on stimulus response buying and a system approach. Gradual computerization is taking place with a fully automated circulation system, oclc, microforms, and semi-automated interlibrary loan. Future issues include cooperation and networking within the profession; cooperation and coordination within the University; and structural reorganization, development of long-range personnel programs, continuing automation, and additional library space.

Library Technical Services in the Age of Computers; A Brief Overview ofLibrary Literature Discussing the Conceptual Impact of Automation onLibrary Operations by Joseph Z Nitecki( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In times when the total volume of information is proliferating and information users are demanding greater access and faster response, the librarian is likely to turn to the computer for assistance. Modern computers can provide fast, accurate operations with an enormous capacity for bibliographic data, and they can be accessed through on-line, time-sharing terminals. Using binary logic to code bibliographic data, new computer languages can facilitate swift manipulation of data and rapid retrieval. Cataloging and indexing can also be automated. In the future computers will be able to provide continuous monitoring of all bibliographic data provided that library technicians and library users can be kept informed of the continuing advances in technology.

On the Modality of Discourse in the Theory of Librarianship by Joseph Z Nitecki( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essay identifies and reviews the major and easily recognizable characteristics of a library discourse and proposes models describing the actual, possible, and necessary modes of library communication. The transmittal of orderly thoughts or information in a library situation differs from a conventional communication pattern. Three unique phases can be distinguished in the library's communication, roughly corresponding to the traditional classification of logical propositions and their basic assertions: (1) the procedural or actual; (2) the contextual or possible; and (3) the conceptual or necessary conditions of any library discourse. The resulting three-fold modality of a library discourse interrelates the physical and objective reality of the message communicated through its carrier, with the conceptual and subjective reality as it is perceived by the recipient of that message.

University Libraries Office of the Director records by State University of New York at Albany( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The records of the Office of the Director are comprised of a variety of documents, including correspondence, meeting minutes and agendas, reports, surveys, financial records, published articles, newsletters, grant applications, manuals, and vendors' promotional materials. The records were generated and collected as the director monitored and participated in the activities of the libraries' units, committees, and advisory groups; interacted with agents outside of the libraries; and reported to administrative superiors. The records begin in 1916, the year the library got its first professionally trained librarian, but the bulk of the collection dates from after 1962, when the school became the State University of New York at Albany and the resources began to be made available to dramatically expand staffing and collections. The earliest records (prior to 1950) are mostly statistical and financial reports
