Abstract:This paper is a description of the Lincoln Trail Libraries System (LTLS) Data Communications Network which was developed without the support of our computer system vendor by nontechnically oriented librarians. In order to explain some of the determining factors which resulted in the development of the Lincoln Trail automated circulation/online catalog system and the decision to develop our own telecommunications network without the support of the computer vendor, this paper will begin with a description of Lincoln Trail, its membership and a very brief overview of the history of the automation project.
