Title:Management information from bibliographic databases
Author(s):Caldwell, Jane L.
Subject(s):Library administration --Data processing

Library science --Data processing
Abstract:This year's clinic dealing with the use of information for library management is very exciting. Perhaps the most exciting element is the fact that we are not talking in futuristic terms. The advent of the personal computer means that almost any library can afford an in-house database as well as access to outside databases. Sophisticated software, such as BRS/SEARCH, will soon be available for use on one's local mini- or microcomputer. This promises local access to the online catalog, an automated circulation control system, serials check-in, and the ability to store and manipulate library statistics and other types of management information. Libraries will have much better control of their own statistics and have surer methods to determine collection usage, user satisfaction, employee performance, etc.
