Title: Reactions to failures in library automation
Author(s): Brodman, Estelle
Subject(s): Libraries --Automation Library science --Data processing Failure
Abstract: I know of at least three other contributing reasons which might explain the dearth of reports telling of the demise or required reconstruction of library automation systems. These are: (1) the emotion of the newly-converted, (2) the attitude of librarians and others dealing with libraries concerning funds, and (3) the difficulty many librarians seem to have in understanding exactly what is subsumed under the words "research and development."
