Based on data gathered from libraries visited, factors influencing the selection of computer facilities are explored. Comparison is made between costs associated with in‐house mainframes and minis. Selection policy in academic, public and special libraries is examined. Other factors considered include staffing, software, hardware selection. Advantages and disadvantage between mainframes and minis are summarised in the conclusion.
