Abstract

In an earlier paper we reported on the application of information technology in Greek libraries. In November 1990, the British Library Research and Development Department (BLR&DD) together with the University College of Wales funded a second visit to Greece by the first author. This visit coincided with the 6th Panhellenic congress of Greek librarians meeting in Athens where the theme of the congress was ‘New technology and Greek libraries’. This visit and our attendance at the congress enabled us to report briefly on progress in the application of information technology in Greek libraries. Since this paper is intended to update the earlier paper, we have striven to avoid repetition and it may be necessary to read the earlier paper before this one.

Abstract

The authors undertook a tour of Greek libraries in the Spring of 1990 in order to present a report to their sponsors (the British Council and the Greek Ministry of Education) on the possibilities for, and the problems associated with the application of information technology in Greek public libraries. The paper provides an overview of the general framework (administrative, legal and financial) within which the different library sectors operate in Greece. It also includes an introduction to the state of professional education and development. The problems which hamper the increased use of information technology are outlined and prospects for future developments are discussed.

Abstract

The following article summarises the results of the LIBACT1/GR project concerning the implementation of UNIMARC and CDS/ISIS in the National Library of Greece and the conversion of the existing records of the Library into the UNIMARC format. The article outlines the basic features of the CDS/ISIS implementation and describes a solution to the problems of implementing UNIMARC on this piece of software. A technique used for the automated UNIMARC formatting of the Library's bibliographic and authority records (from simple ASCII text original files) is also described and evaluated.
