This guide provides an overview of the diverse nature of the relationship between the system librarian and the computer. Offering a vision of the future of data processing, this book discusses the requirements of library computer systems and the concomitant demands of library users, vendors and staff members. The first chapter covers general systems management including computer security, suggestions for questions to ask when interviewing potential systems staff, how to decide who gets that new terminal, dealing with consultants and more. Chapter two covers problems of data processing. Other subjects covered include back-up systems, computer security, desktop publishing, controlling the user and the usage of CD-ROM. The authors base the information on their own experience.
