This paper describes a computerised book ordering and cataloguing system for the Libraries and Museum Services Department of the Cheshire County Council. The system was introduced in December 1971 and is now being used to order all adult non‐fiction material; it features on‐line data entry via visual display terminals and the production of book catalogues on microfilm direct from magnetic tape.
