Abstract: This paper describes a project that takes a step-by-step or incremental approach to the development of an online comprehensive system running on a dedicated computer. The described design paid particular attention to present and predicted capabilities in computing as well as to trends in library automation. The resultant system is now in its second of three releases, having tied together circulation control, catalog access, and serial holdings.
