Published in 1992. Investing in, running and managing an automated library system is an expensive, time-consuming activity. This guide, one of a series looking at library automation systems, will not only help prospective users in their systems choice, but will also give current users a better appreciation of the potential of their own system.

Written by users of the system and reflecting their experience, the guide examines DYNIX’s place in the automated libraries’ market, the company’ history, reliability and support services. All the hardware and software used in connection with DYNIX are described and the reader is taken through all the processes involved in setting up the system, and introduced to the specific packages and applications.

This guide will also be of interest to students of information management, information science and librarianship.
