Title:The administration and organization of data processing for the Library as viewed from the Computing Centre
Author(s):Dobb, T.C.
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation
Abstract:In order to give some structure to my paper, I will preface it by stating that library administration for automation at Simon Fraser has passed through four phases since 1965 and began a fifth on May 1, 1969. The real situation was somewhat more dynamic and haphazard than I will suggest. Like most institutions of comparable size, our library reacts to life rather than generating it; although we like to pretend it is otherwise when we are on public display. I would like to make it clear that while I will concern myself mainly with tracing the administrative convulsions of the Simon Fraser University Library as they related to automation and the Computing Centre, I really believe it is more fruitful to concern oneself with right people rather than with right structures mainly because people do things and structures do not.
