Abstract

In an article published in the May 1997 issue of College and Research Libraries Merri Beth Lavagnino traced the history of the systems librarian and systems department in academic libraries. She identified four evolutionary stages, where Stage One was no automation and Stage Four was characterized by the effects of networking and distributed computing. Lavagnino ended her article by predicting the emergence of a fifth stage. However, she pointed out it was too early to describe that stage. This paper examines the growth of automation at two university libraries, with particular attention to the four stages described by Lavagnino. The authors then attempt to provide a more complete description of Stage Five. It seems to be an outgrowth of the distributed computing and networking components of Stage Four. New factors include a growth in digitized resources, integration of systems, and developments in client/server technology, especially as they relate to the World Wide Web. Finally, Stage Five libraries seem to have made changes in the organizational structure, reflecting a need for a technical person at the upper management level.

Abstract

The 16,000‐record inventory of some 19,000 stolen books confiscated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and used as evidence in the recent trial of Stephen Blumberg has been mounted on the EPIC service, OCLC's online reference system. The database, which contains a bibliographic description and a list of holdings for each recovered item, helps libraries determine whether any of the stolen materials are from their collections.

Abstract

The FirstSearch Catalog, OCLC's new online reference service designed for library patrons, won the Computers in Libraries Information Product/Service (CLIPS) Award for 1992 (see Figure 1). A panel of five library professionals selected FirstSearch as the most innovative and effective information product or service of the year. The judges felt that FirstSearch deserved the award because it is designed for library patrons, it is very easy to use, and it is backed by OCLC's long‐standing reputation for reliability.
