Abstract

A brief history of the libraries in Oxford University is given, followed by a review of progress towards comprehensive library automation from the early 1960s. This includes a description of the retrospective conversion of the Bodleian Pre‐1920 Catalogue, the OCLC LS2000 pilot project, and the present university‐wide IBM DOBIS/LIBIS system. The process of selecting, installing and modifying this system is described in more detail.
