Abstract:The University of Minnesota Bio-Medical Library received a three-year grant of $361,729 from the National Library of Medicine in June 1972 to develop a low-cost, stand-alone, library-controlled computer system which would handle book ordering, serials check-in and control, accounting, cata- loging, circulation, and reference assistance a complete, integrated library data management system. The project, as of April 1974, has one year of develop- mental work before the system becomes fully operational. The design of the system has been completed, but procedures for staff use of the system and display and printing formats are still under development. Part of this paper therefore describes procedures which may be modified before the project is completed.
