The computer book ordering system now in operation in Kent County Library is described and its development traced. It is based on the use of Standard Book Numbers accessing a main file of authors, titles, and prices to produce the orders to booksellers. All accounting and checking procedures are fully automated and reminders are sent automatically. Some staff savings have been realised, many routines abolished, and a much greater financial control achieved.
