Design of library systems for implementation with interactive computers

Journal of library automation [March 1970]


Abstract: In the development of library systems, the movement today is toward the so-called "total" or integrated system. This raises certain designs and implementation questions, such as: what functions should be on-line, real time and what should be done off line in a batch mode; should one operate in a time-shared environment or is a dedicated system preferred; is it practical to design and implement a total system or is the selective implementation of a series of applications to be proffered. Although it may not be feasible in most cases to design and install a total system in a single operation, it is shown how a series of application programs can become the incremental development of such a system.
