Title:A librarian's view of data processing
Author(s):Palmer, Foster M.
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation
Abstract:Choosing a title for this paper five months before it was to be given was something of a problem. Knowing I had the broad field of library applications of data processing to discuss added to the number of possibilities. "Testament," however, seemed too final; "confessions" seemed too lurid finally I settled on "view." However, one's view may change, depending on the viewpoint, and, in fact, I will offer not a single view but three. First I will discuss the rather expansive experimental days of the MARC Project, then the problems of getting an actual daily production job on the road, and finally, in a different vein, I will present some ideas on possible future systems.
