Title:The data processing program in operation at the Suffolk Cooperative Library System, Patchogue, New York
Author(s):Curley, Walter W.
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation
Automatic Data Processing --Congresses
Abstract:February 10, 1963 will always be remembered by the staff of the Suffolk Cooperative Library System as the day the button was pushed. Prior to that time, all of the reasons why mechanized data processing might be applicable had been carefully explored; all were aware that a manual operation might keep the system alive and would have the added advantage that, if it failed, the disaster would make less of a noise from one end of the state to the other. However, the reasons for mechanization were so compelling that the exciting step was taken.
