Book Description

This book, first published in 1987, expertly addresses the impact of automation on the profession of librarianship in terms of its practitioners, standards, and underlying philosophy. In clear and understandable language, it focuses - with practical examples - on the important decision of the location of the computer - at the library site or a remote automation centre. Designed to be a practical guide to host computer location, this articulate book also addresses the broad professional issues of library automation.
