Abstract

The paper describes the use of STATUS by TRRL's Technical Information and Library Services to mechanize the library's document ordering, cataloguing, loans control and to integrate these functions with a cooperatively‐acquired international database of abstracts — all in a single document record. Modifications made to standard STATUS to meet TRRL's needs are described and the good and bad features of STATUS as found in practice are outlined.
