Computer-based acquisitions procedures at Tarrant County Junior College District by John Corbin( Book )

6 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The computer-based procedures described in this report form the basis of book acquisitions performed by the Automation and Technical Services Division in serving the Learning Resources Centers of the multi-campus Tarrant County Junior College District. The procedures, which are off-line in a batch mode, have been operational since 1968. Since 1970 an ibm 360 Model 40 (256k, with three tape drives and eight dual-density disk drives) has been used. Five major operations are carried out: 1) At the beginning of each fiscal year, the Budget File, a tape record of each fund account used in acquisitions, is initialized. (2) Weekly processing is done on new book orders and on orders in various stages of completion. (3) a monthly budget report is built and printed for all fund accounts. (4) Maintenance is carried out on all the files. (5) Notices are sent to vendors for orders outstanding over 90 days. For each of these five operations, this report describes input required, files used, processing steps, and output. Illustrative materials are included in the appendix. (Author/SL)

A study of cooperative, networking, and computer activities in Southwestern libraries by John Corbin( Book )

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

The Southwestern Library Association (swla) conducted an inventory and study of the swla libraries in cooperative, network, and computer activities to collect data for use in planning future activities and in minimizing duplication of efforts. Questionnaires were mailed to 2,060 academic, public, and special libraries in the six swla states. Completed questionnaires returned by 938 libraries were encoded into a Hewlett-Packard 2000 minicomputer using a standard questionnaire analysis program to tabulate and cross-tabulate the answers. Tabulated information includes network participation, type of computer activities participation, circulation system employed, and survey summaries by state and by type of institution. The 98 library networks within the swla, including the member libraries and cooperative activities in which they participate, are listed. (Author/JAB)
