A practical guide to preservation in school and public libraries by Maxine K Sitts( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 127 libraries worldwide
This monograph provides some starting points for beginning preservation activities in libraries within a framework of three key essentials: awareness, judgment, and advocacy. In the first section, the text is concerned with how public and school libraries can both contribute to, and benefit from, the vast amount of preservation information that is available at national, state, and regional levels. Examples of preservation initiatives and programs by national, state, and regional groups are provided. The second section lists a number of resources for incorporating preservation-conscious procedures and skills into public and school libraries. The resources relate to the following preservation themes: planning/general approaches, environmental conditions, maintenance, repair, binding, local history, media, disasters and emergencies. In addition, some general examples of how to begin preservation activities are provided. In the third section titles of resources are given to promote preservation advocacy to library supporters and funders, vendors, and users. Concluding the monograph are annotated lists of comprehensive references and bibliographies about beginning preservation activities. A discussion of the national preservation agenda is appended.

This inventory provides profiles, tables, and listings describing automated library activities at 117 Association of Research Libraries (arl) institutions. For the first time, the inventory includes analyses of aggregate information from individual library profiles. The analyses are divided into four categories that reflect primarily bibliographic functions: (1) public access (online catalog, database searching, cd-rom, public computing, circulation, interlibrary loan, reserves, telefacsimile); (2) technical services (acquisitions, authority control, cataloging/local, cataloging/utility, serials check/claim, serials union list, database conversion, com catalog, collection development); (3) number of operational and planned functions--1988 and 1987; and (4) computer ownership, public access, and the extent of function for selected functions. Also provided is a detachable page for institutional feedback on the analyses. The report also contains a list of vendors for selected functions; individual library profiles; additional resources on automation; automation inventory contacts for 1988; and an appendix which includes a descriptive factors list, a listing of functions, and the 1988 automated in-house systems listing--a guide for standardized references to in-house systems--and background on the automation inventory.

The Automation inventory of research libraries, 1986 by Maxine K., Ed Sitts( Book )
2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
Based on information and data from 113 Association of Research Libraries (arl) members that were gathered and updated between March and August 1986, this publication was generated from a database developed by arl to provide timely, comparable information about the extent and nature of automation within the arl community. Trends in automation are traced in the areas of operating status, locally developed and amended vendor systems, system extent beyond the library, ownership status, public access, and amount of integration; and comparative responses from 1985 and 1986 are presented for the number and percentage of libraries reporting automation status and integrated status. In addition, this document includes: an introduction summarizing trends in automation and changes from the 1985 inventory; the survey letter, instruction and code sheet, and automated in-house systems listing; a listing of libraries and contact persons; listings sorted by function; complete listings of all functions in alphabetical order by library; and comments.

The automation inventory of research libraries by Maxine K Sitts( Book )
2 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This publication reporting the responses of 92 Association of Research Libraries (arl) members to an automation inventory survey conducted in March 1985 was generated from a database developed by arl to provide timely, comparable information about the extent and nature of automation within the arl library community. Among operational systems, the five most-often-reported uses for automation are: database searching (92), cataloging/utility (89), administrative (85), interlibrary loan (87), and serials/union list (57). Of libraries planning to automate functions, the five most frequent responses are: online catalog (58), serials check-in/claim (43), reserve room (39), cataloging/local (30), and circulation (29). When libraries reported on modifying systems, they most often reported acquisitions (10), circulation (8), and cataloging/local (6). This document includes: an introduction and survey background information; an overview of findings; examples of information from searches of the database; descriptions of inventory data elements (including a data collection matrix); a brief report on expenditures; and a schedule of fees for automation inventory searches and this publication. Print-outs of the data for all functions by library complete the report. (Thc)
