Abstract: Simon Fraser University library began operation with an automated circulation system. After deliberation, it mounted the first phase of a two-phase on-line circulation system. A radically revised loan policy caused the system design and assumptions to be called into question. A cheaper, simpler, and more effective off-line system eventually replaced the on-line system. The systems, fiscal, and administrative implications of this decision are reviewed.
