Abstract

The application of computer technology to routine procedures in libraries has been evolving for more than twenty years. As technology has made new applications possible and as library and vendor expertise has developed, some libraries today are working with a second or even a third system vendor. This paper reports on a survey of libraries in the United States which have changed vendors and it identifies commonality and variation in factors associated with automation system change by these libraries.

Abstract

In China, libraries can be grouped into three major categories: (1) the public libraries, headed by the National Library of China and including the provincial, municipal, prefectural, and county libraries; (2) the academic libraries under the control of the Ministry of Education, including the university and college libraries and middle and elementary school libraries; and (3) the libraries of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Academic Sinica), including the science and research libraries. Academic libraries play a very special role in the country among these groups of libraries and are becoming increasingly important, as they are at the centre of information and education on each campus (Ma 1989).

Abstract

With the availability of some innovative second generation systems in the Arabian Gulf marketplace, several libraries in the region are considering system migration. However, they are faced with a number of challenges some of which have continued from the time of implementation of the first generation systems. The paper aims to highlight those challenges and emphasises the need to address them in the planning stage so that the process of changing systems does not turn into a futile exercise.
