Abstract:In the fall of 1972, the Van Pelt Library of the University of Pennsylvania Libraries installed the IBM System/7-2790 Data Communication System for circulation control replacing an IBM 1030 Data Collection System which had displaced a manual system in 1969. This article will describe the System/7 installation at the University of Pennsylvania with emphasis on the management aspects of the system with only brief mention of circulation procedures or processing programs. Reference will be made to variations in S/7 implementation by six other libraries.
