1976: The Economics of Library Automation


13th Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1976). Edited by J.L. Divilbiss

The Thirteenth Annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing was held at the Illini Union on the campus of the University of Illinois, April 25-28, 1976. The 1976 clinic had as its theme the economics of library automation, a topic of increasing importance to librarians as they cope with inflation and other financial problems. In planning the clinic we attempted to cover many different aspects of a complex and difficult area. Some of the papers deal with fairly specific library processes, such as circulation or book catalog production, while others deal with more general techniques for determining costs and benefits.

The complete text of the proceedings is available here as well as the individual papers. The papers included here are:
