Abstract

The sources of pressure on an organization to improve the management of its environmental performance are many and increasing. They all demand increasing amounts and types of information from the organization. Information technology (IT) provides the means to address both these demands and the data needs which are internal to the organization. A methodical approach is required to determine how IT can best be used. By examining the business processes used to manage environmental performance, the types of data to be handled and the outputs and reports required, the organization can prioritize IT investments. These may be in specialized information systems, but are just as likely to be in general data manipulation tools and communication network enhancements.

Abstract

Newcastle University Library has produced a serials catalogue using the Northumbrian Universities Multiple Access Computer (NUMAC), an IBM 370/168, with software from the Newcastle File Handling System (NFHS). Input is via a visual display unit (VDU). The file contents, file organisation and data elements used are described. Output is currently paper printout. The serials catalogue is linked to the automated circulation system. An example of the editing procedures is given.

Abstract

The University of Michigan owns one of the largest collections of ancient papyri. In 1991 a project was initiated to explore image capture of papyri in the Michigan collection with the use of electronic media (scanners), and to create a detailed online catalog with information relevant for all those involved in the study and research of the ancient Mediterranean world. In the summer of 1994, the Michigan papyrus collection underwent an extensive period of testing alternative media for image capture, as well as better, faster, and more efficient hardware and software. The collection created its own home page on the World Wide Web and made available sample images as a means of soliciting comments from the experts in the field of papyrology. The papyrus collection at Duke University has also launched a project similar to that envisioned by Michigan in 1991; and that project is now approaching completion. Further developments in the past two years have brought together the five largest papyrus collections in the United States to form a consortium known as the Advanced Papyrological Information System (APIS), which operates under the guidance of the American Society of Papyrologists (ASP).

Abstract

Awareness of the integral and necessary relationship between collection management and development and preservation programs has been increasing in recent years. At long last, collection managers and preservation specialists have begun to work together more closely and to identify areas of common concern.

Abstract

The automated order system at Newcastle University Library has been running on the University's KDF 9 computer since Easter 1966. The KDF 9 is due to go out of service in the near future, and so the order system is being re‐programmed for the University's IBM 360 model 67 computer. The IBM machine has 1024k bytes of core storage, 12 disk drives, 4 tape drives, and has a large number of terminals for on‐line ‘conversational’ access. For most of the day the machine is operated under the Michigan Terminal System (called ‘MTS’) rather than under the standard IBM operating system (called ‘OS/360’). The University Library has a terminal for its own use (an IBM 2741 ‘golf‐ball’ typewriter terminal).

There are signs of optimism in the mechanical handling industry — Mark Radcliffe, right, says that Lancer Boss is going for an aggressive expansion policy. But, as Roger Eglin of The Observer reports, they have only come after a long customer education programme. Pictures by Patrick Thurston.

Abstract

We are pleased to publish in this issue an article by Mr. H. H. Bagnall, the recently retired City Analyst of Birmingham, who has for many years been a dominant figure in the world of public analysts. His annual reports have always attracted wide publicity, both for their originality in exposing “ tricks of the trade ” and for his comments, sometimes caustic, sometimes racy, on those who perpetuate such tricks. In his article, he looks backwards through the years to describe in his own inimitable style a few of the important cases he has figured in and we agree with him, that many others in the field of food administration and approaching the end of their public careers, could well emulate this example.

Abstract

Through the ideas of and within Oceania that we outline, and within which we locate architecture and institutions for CIE regionally, we illustrate the identified turning points through analysis of dynamic and intersecting trajectories of the Oceania Comparative and International Education Society (OCIES), formerly the Australia and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society (ANZCIES), and the Vaka Pasifiki, formerly the Rethinking Pacific Education Initiative for and by Pacific Peoples (RPEIPP) project. We offer initial responses to an over-arching theme in posing the question: how, and through what processes, have these groups influenced understandings of ‘regionalism’ for CIE within Oceania? This involves examining the conferences, financing, membership, the Society journal/publications and aspects of CIE education of the two bodies.

Abstract

Newcastle University Library is installing an Automated Library Systems (ALS) issue system, which will start operation in October 1973. In an ALS issue system each book must have a unique number. At Newcastle all our monographs have an accession number which is adequate for this purpose. Unlike some university libraries, New‐castle issues bound volumes of periodicals as well as monographs, and these do not have an accession number. As we wanted to include periodical issues in the automated system, a number had to be assigned to each volume, and some means devised of recognising which number belonged to which volume.
