Abstract:BALLOTS (Bibliographic Automation of Large Library Operations using a Time -sharing System) is an on-line interactive library automation system that supports the acquisition and cataloging functions of the Stanford University Libraries' technical processing operations. The BALLOTS system is being implemented in a series of eleven modules. A large part of BALLOTS' development up to the development of the first module was funded by a grant from the U.S. Office of Education, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. This paper describes the first module, BALLOTS-MARC (or simply, the MARC module), and various aspects of system hardware and software as they pertain to this module. The MARC module was scheduled for implementation in the late summer of 1972. The other modules are briefly described at the end of this paper.
