1964: Proceedings of the 1964 Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing
2nd Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1964). Edited by Herbert Goldhor.
The papers and discussions at this second annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing have demonstrated conclusively that the use of this new tool is not the wave of the future but that it is something which is already here. These papers and other publications have much to say about the technical aspects and implications of this new machine and of the approach to library operations which it requires.
The complete text of the proceedings is available here as well as the individual papers. The papers included here are:
- Implications For Librarianship Of Computer Technology - Robert M. Hayes
- The Computer-Produced Book Catalog: An Application Of Data Processing At Monsanto's Information Center - W. A. Wilkinson
- Development Of Computerization Of Card Catalogs In Medical And Scientific Libraries - Frederick G. Kilgour
- Computer Simulations At The Columbia University Libraries - Warren J. Haas
- Principles Of Computer Programming - Kern W. Dickman

The computer-produced book catalog: An application of data processing at Monsanto's Information Center with discussion led by W.A. Kozumplik. (Graduate School of Library Science. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 1964)Data processing techniques have been applied at Monsanto' s Information Center for several reasons: (1) To lower operating costs, (2) To meet future growth requirements with minimum staff and budget, (3) To provide ...
(Graduate School of Library Science. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 1964)Conferences such as this one have made it increasingly evident that anyone speaking of the computer and the library is no longer dealing with possibilities but with probabilities. Historically, the library profession ...
(Graduate School of Library Science. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 1964)Various scientific libraries are computerizing their card catalogs; some produce catalog cards and others have gone to book catalogs. At least one library associated with the military establishment is developing an ...
(Graduate School of Library Science. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 1964)The complexity of our modern society science, technology, government, business has become so great that its very existence is made possible only through correspondingly complex mechanisms for communication, processing, ...
