Title:Development of automatic systems at the University of Missouri Library with a discussion led by Ralph E. McCoy

Abstract:Since conversion from one data system to another is a monumental undertaking, few organizations dare to make immediate complete changes. Most first convert existing applications into subsystems which will eventually be part of the new over-all system. This evolutionary approach has been followed by the University of Missouri Library. The sections which follow will describe briefly the applications of punched card and similar equipment in this library and will attempt to show how they have been developed into subsystems. It is appropriate at this time to point out that the automation program is limited to records and does not include physical handling of books, for example.
