Title:Configurations and Software: A Tutorial
Author(s):Corey, James F.
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation
Minicomputers --Library applications
Abstract:This paper, together with the preceding paper by Divilbiss, is intended to provide a background for the characteristics of minicomputers and the ways in which they can be configured to tackle library problems. As part of the discussion of minicomputer features, an attempt is made to compare and contrast them with larger, general purpose computers. An acquaintance with basic computer concepts is assumed. Concepts of a more technical nature are explained as they are introduced. The first section below discusses configura- tions; the second section covers minicomputer software. Hardware and archi- tectural features are covered in the paper by Divilbiss.
