Abstract

In the last four years, since Volume I of this Bibliography first appeared, there has been an explosion of literature in all the main functional areas of business. This wealth of material poses problems for the researcher in management studies — and, of course, for the librarian: uncovering what has been written in any one area is not an easy task. This volume aims to help the librarian and the researcher overcome some of the immediate problems of identification of material. It is an annotated bibliography of management, drawing on the wide variety of literature produced by MCB University Press. Over the last four years, MCB University Press has produced an extensive range of books and serial publications covering most of the established and many of the developing areas of management. This volume, in conjunction with Volume I, provides a guide to all the material published so far.

Abstract

In a dummy article, which itself forms a model, the types of contribution welcomed for Program (full‐length articles, short communications, news items, letters to the Editor) are characterised. Desirable features of the format of contributed scripts are listed, and the various stages in the publication of a paper are described. 6 [sample] references.

Abstract

Automation is no longer an option; it is no longer “if” but “when” and “how”. This book has been written for senior librarians who recognise this, for their line managers to whom the detailed work has been delegated, and for the junior staff, library and clerical, who need to know not only how to operate a system, but why it works as it does.

Abstract

The developments in the use of computer systems in libraries from 1966 to date have been great. This report, written to coincide with the twenty‐first anniversary of the publication of Program, looks at some of these developments, in Britain, in North America, and in other countries. It traces the history of library automation from the early experimental systems through to the co‐operative systems, the locally developed systems, the mini‐ and microcomputer‐based and stand‐alone integrated systems that are available today.

Abstract

Misunderstandings, delays, Jack of access to the machine, inadequate program packages and over‐optimistic promises from the manufacturers, staff changes and a complete change of machine are all part of the ordinary background to the development of a new Library system. The Humberside Libraries, who suffered from all these, were fortunate, however, in establishing excellent relations with the authority's Management Services Department, and together they have established a satisfactory system. The report gives an account of the process, a list of programs, samples of the printouts produced by the system, and of the various stages in the development of the cataloguing worksheet — another example of co‐operation between Library and computer staff.

Abstract

1. BLCMP has just published a document describing the Project's use of the MARC format:‐ BLCMP MARC Manual: input procedures for monographs cataloguing. With supplement: music and sound recordings. BLCMP, 1972. £1.50. ISBN 0 903154 03X. This is primarily an instruction manual for BLCMP staff but is likely to be of interest both to other MARC users and to those contemplating automation of cataloguing. The manual parallels the BNB MARC Documentation Service publication no.5; it describes the format for cataloguing monographs as it is applied by BLCMP, and shows how, on occasion, this differs from BNB practice. The format in use for serials cataloguing has already been described in MASS Working Paper no.1, 1970. In the United States the tendency appears to be for the Library of Congress to develop different, not necessarily compatible, formats for different media. In the UK, however, it is regarded as important, largely for economy of program development, that all media should conform to a basic format with extensions to it for special media. This is the case with the BLCMP cataloguing format for music and sound recordings and serials.

1) REPORT OF INFORMATION OFFICER'S VISIT TO NEWCASTLE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY SEPTEMBER 27th, 1971 1. Unfortunately my visit to the libirary was very short. I talked to Mr. Alan Jeffreys (Sub‐Librarian, Cataloguing) about the catalogue Computerisation Project (CCP) and I also met Mr. John Bagnall (Automation Officer) end Mr. Colin Balmforth (Deputy Librarian); there was no time to look at the automated Acquisitions system.

Abstract

This paper reports the findings of a study which tested a model that predicts the turnover cognitions of hotel managers. Several predictor variables of turnover intentions were identified: perceived psychological contract breach and felt violation; organisational commitment; career expectations; perceived managerial competencies; job satisfaction, career identity and career satisfaction; demographic and human capital characteristics; and organisational characteristics. A total of 14 hypotheses were tested. The study findings (based on a sample of 89 hotel managers), reveal that a number of variables significantly predict turnover cognitions. These findings do not correspond with the normative predictions found in the hospitality literature. The findings reveal that it is the more psychological, perceptual and affective variables that are most significant in explaining turnover intentions. The findings highlight the types of variables that are important in managing the expectations of hotel managers and from the perspective of the hotel as employer, the types of issues that should be considered to enable better retention of high performing managers.
