Abstract

Library automation requires an extraordinary investment of time and money in the development and maintenance of databases. Irrespective of whether a library sets up a stand-alone system such as circulation, a group of more or less related subsystems, or a totally integrated system, it can be certain of one thing: over time needs will change, new applications will have to be developed, and modifications will have to be made to the file structure of the databases. Of principal concern to the designers of a library's databases should be finding a design structure that will allow modifications to be made with a minimum of additional time and cost.
