Abstract:As is generally the case with libraries in the physical and life sciences fields, particularly in research-oriented institutions, journals and periodicals are the mainstay of the library services. In order to adequately cover the scope and range of materials required by the service function, the library maintains subscriptions to about 6,500 journals. The goal is to collect all important materials within scope which are published throughout the world. Recognizing the potential of automation to handle the large quantities of data entailed by our periodical operations, we became one of the first libraries to enlist the use of the computer to manage our files of journal information when the initial efforts at systems design and programming were begun in 1963. By 1966 a machine-readable file had been prepared and initial listing and updating capabilities were operational. By the end of 1969 we had developed an integrated card and tape oriented batch process system to handle our check-in, claiming, and binding operations, and in that year published our first annual serials holdings list in conjunction with the Regional Medical Library operations.
