Title: Modeling Library Communications Traffic
Author(s): Kountz, John C.
Subject(s): Libraries --Communication systems Telecommunication in libraries Library science --Technological innovations Library science --Data processing Libraries --Automation
Abstract: It exudes a state of euphoric glee i.e., our system at work! The most recent episode of this situation comedy (called "free enterprise") was entitled: "It works, it's reliable and cheap so let's dump it!" Thus, it can be argued that the world's only working reliable economical telecommunications system was scrapped to satisfy the desires of a handful of entrepreneurs. Basically, individuals who had discovered that a string of radio transmitter/receiver combinations, once installed, could make money because such devices require very little attention if done right and would nearly run forever just add electricity!
