Title:The economics of library computerization
Author(s):Kilgour, Frederick G.
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation
Libraries --Economics
Library science --Data processing
Abstract:In talking about the economics of library computerization I will answer the question: What is meant by the economics of library computerization? The economics that I am concerned with is scientific economics, the study of how men in society elect to use limited resources for the production of goods and services. The three fundamental economic questions in any society are: What is to be produced? How is it to be produced? For whom is it to be produced? The same questions apply to librarianship and to library computerization.
