Abstract

Describes the development and use of the Book Trade Electronic Data Interchange Standard (BEDIS) at Paisley College Library in collaboration with the booksellers, John Smith & Sons (Glasgow). BEDIS is an automated book supply system which has advantages over systems presently used by many large libraries which rely on downloaded systems and which therefore have the disadvantage of locking a library into one supplier. Describes the development and installation of the BEDIS system from the viewpoint of the librarian, the bookseller and the computer analyst. Stuart James gives an overview and considers favourably the system′s future application in other libraries.
