Abstract:The University of Chicago Library is working on a project for the development of an integrated, computer-based, bibliographical data system for a large university library. This project title is awkward, but it is descriptive, and it stresses some important features of the project: (1) a third generation computer with randomaccess disk files and remote terminal access capability is being used to implement a real-time library data processing system; (2) the library system design is based on the operational requirements of a large university library and does not attempt to solve the problems of other types of libraries nor those of national systems; (3) the system is highly integrated in that all processing data for the technical processing operations (acquisitions, cataloging, binding, etc.), as well as bibliographic descriptive data, are handled in a single system; and (4) the title emphasizes, we hope, that this work is developmental and experimental.
