Book selection from Marc tapes by Jane Wainwright( Book )

5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April 1971 the Aslib Research and Development Department began a study on selective dissemination from marc tapes. The aim of the project was to explore the technical and economic feasibility of providing selective notifications of current books, by extraction from marc tapes, to specialized libraries. Typical of the potential customers envisaged would be Aslib member organizations. A comparison would be made of the utility of the various elements in the marc record as search keys. The project was planned in six phases: (1) planning and program specification for marc file creation and searching; (2) programing; (3) exploratory work with test file; (4) pilot operation with users; (5) analysis of results, conclusions, report; and, (6) market survey. This report covers the first five phases of the project. (Author/SJ)

Why Use a Minicomputer? Some Factors Affecting Their Selection by Jane Wainwright( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A study of computer facilities in British libraries highlighted the respective benefits and disadvantages of using the parent institution's central computer or using a dedicated minicomputer. The large computer's technical advantages include greater opportunities for sharing or buying operational software, and the availability of experienced staff. The maintenance problems are not for the library to solve. The computer is capable of handling the large sorts and large files characteristic of library processing. Greater availability of higher level languages speeds up the development of a system and aids the unavoidable change to new equipment. With a minicomputer the library has control over access, is independent of the idiosyncrasies of the computer center, and is secure for the life of the equipment. The system will be tailor-made for the library but capable of expansion. In exchange for these benefits, the library has the responsibility of selecting, financing, operating, and maintaining the system. (Author/PF)
