Design of Library Systems for Implementation with Interactive Computers

I. A. Warheit

Abstract


In the development of library systems, the movement today is toward the so-called "total" or integrated system. This raises certain design 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-share 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 preferred. 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.
