Abstract

Setting up an SC350 may look complicated at first, but with patience, some computer background, and support from knowledgeable contacts, creating a fully operational SC350 workstation does not have to be a nerve‐wracking experience. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to work with a very helpful staff at OCLC and SUNY OCLC. The following could be considered a report on “how we did it” or could be useful information for the library preparing for or considering using SC350. Once the technicians arrive with the hardware, you are faced with assembling an M300 terminal, CRT, a Tallgrass hard disk drive, an unattached modem, and a printer. You are supplied with several lengthy manuals, and have virtually very little idea of how to proceed. The technicians will unpack and hook‐up the following items: the disk drive and CRT. They will further assist you by installing your M300 software on floppy disks. They are very polite, will wish you luck, and leave. But what about the modem, hard disk, and printer? To finish the job at hand, it is important to read through the manuals and sort through the remaining unpacked materials in order to prepare a successful gameplan.
