Abstract

This article is the first in a series of three describing the automation system used in the Department of Printed Books at the National Library of Wales. An overview of the computer system (a McDonnell Douglas M9000 using a version of the URICA package) and the communications network is given. The procedures for monograph acquisitions are outlined together with the policy for acquiring computer‐readable records relating to potential intake. Subsequent articles will describe cataloguing, the Online Public Access Catalogue, circulation, retrospective record conversion and serials control.

Abstract

This is the second in a series of three articles describing the automation system, based on McDonnell Douglas' URICA package used in the Department of Printed Books at the National Library of Wales. A description of the Cataloguing Module is given, including developments to respond to changing working practices and problems inherent in the original system design. The Retrospective Record Conversion procedures are described and the likely impact of CD‐ROM technology is recognised. Finally the Enquiry/Public Access and Circulation modules are described giving short‐comings of the existing system and suggested ways to improve the facilities in the future.

Abstract

This article presents a resumé of the development, implementation and the first year of live operation in the Department of Printed Books at the National Library of Wales of a major automation system supplied by McDonnell Douglas Information Systems Limited based upon a version of their integrated library package URICA. The paper continues with a summary of the lessons that were learnt in introducing a sophisticated integrated computer system into an organisation where little experience of automated library practice was available.

Abstract

The article describes a project undertaken at the National Library of Wales to compare automated systems for the storage and retrieval of historic cartographic records. The selection and purchase of software, cataloguing of a representative sample of historic cartographic materials, system customisation and data input is outlined. Following the evaluation of systems, conclusions are drawn for future automated map catalogue development.

Abstract

A bilingual Welsh‐English full text database is planned for Inspection Reports of Her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools for Wales. Special requirements for free text retrieval in the Welsh language are identified, and practical solutions are proposed for problems arising from the use of standard text database products, some of which may also apply to other lesser‐used languages.

Abstract

In March 1987, during a visit to Latin America concerned with education for librarianship, I noted a number of interesting developments in library automation. The main library of the National University of Mexico, UNAM, is developing a major co‐operative database for cataloguing, LIBERUNAM. Some 300,000 bibliographical records are already included, mostly from the main library, but the system is eventually expected to cover most of the 100+ libraries in UNAM. The computer can apparently support several hundred terminals, and a programme of installing OPACs in some of the faculty libraries is beginning shortly.

Abstract

Purpose

White nationalist groups have recently been at the forefront of American sociopolitical life, as demonstrated by the events in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017. The purpose of this paper is to explore the historical roots and various waves of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

Design/methodology/approach

This paper offers high school teachers age-appropriate, evocative texts and disciplinary-specific, engaging tasks organized in a guided inquiry on the KKK, America’s most prominent hate organization.

Findings

Students are positioned to utilize newly-constructed understandings to take informed action on the local, state and national level.

Originality/value

Recently-published research has explored late-nineteenth century and early-twentieth century manifestations of the Klan, but not mid-twentieth and twenty-first century outbursts.
