Title:Shawnee Mission's on-line cataloging system: The first two years
Author(s):Miller, Ellen Wasby; Hodges, B.J.
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation
Online data processing
School libraries
Abstract:The last detailed article about the Shawnee Mission (Kansas) Public Schools' library system was written during the summer of 1970 and published in March 1971. This paper reports major events from April 1970 through March 1972. It quantitatively describes the on-line system, discusses management issues, and reports on plans for future development. Given the general dearth of continuous quantitative and qualitative reporting about library computer applications, it is hoped that this second article will be followed by later performance analyses. Periodic reporting is particularly critical in library areas with relatively little automation, such as school and medium-sized libraries.
