      Processing
      Everything done to a bibliographic item after it is acquired by a library, before it is placed on the shelf, including accessioning, cataloging, stamping, labeling, numbering, jacketing, etc. In some libraries, items in process are identified as such in the online catalog. The user may request that processing be expedited if an item is urgently needed. Compare with technical processing.

      technical processing
      All the activities and processes concerned with acquiring, organizing, preparing, and maintaining library collections, including cataloging and physical processing, usually accomplished “behind the scenes” by the technical services department of a library. When the department is understaffed, arrears may accumulate. See also: centralized processing.

      What is Library Automation?
      Library automation can be defined simply as the use of computer and networkingtechnologies in the library.
      School Library Automation By K.T. Lam for the In-service Training Course for Teacher-Librarians Organized by the HK Education Department
    • library automation
      The design and implementation of ever more sophisticated computer systems to accomplish tasks originally done by hand in libraries. Beginning in the 1960s with the development of the machine-readablecatalog record (MARC), the process of automation has expanded to include the core functions of acquisitions, cataloging and authority control, serials control, circulation and inventory, and interlibrary loan and document delivery.

      Basic elements in automation
      The CIRCULATION SYSTEM tracks the status of all LMC materials that circulate.
      The ONLINE CATALOG provides instant access to catalog records as well as inventory data and brief acquisitions records via powerful interactive searching and help capabilities.
      The ACQUISITIONS SYSTEM manages ordering functions, from entering order data through claiming items ordered but not received.
      SERIALS CHECK-IN maintains records of journals, magazines, and other items received periodically.

      The browser-based platform includes four modules: Destiny Library Manager, Destiny Textbook Manager, Destiny Media Manager, and Destiny Asset Manager, all of which are designed for central management of physical and digital materials.
      Enhancements to the Library Manager--and its new, integrated online search interface, Destiny Quest--include improved management of user names and passwords; customization capabilities for individual user accounts; new networking and collaboration tools; and advanced search result sorting and organization.

    • Alternatives to proprietary systems
      The Case for Open Source Software in the Library Market
      Solutions based on freely distributed software will give libraries another choice for obtaining the support services that best meet the needs of their users.
      Many library applications are expensive and not responsive enough to the needs of libraries and their users. This is not the fault of libraries or of library software vendors, almost all of which try very hard within the present market conditions to develop good products and services. But current marketing practices serve as a barrier to cost reduction and to the enhancement of product quality that could occur with different marketing practices.

      The OPALS Open-source Automated Library System is a powerful cooperatively developed, Web-based, open source program providing Internet access to information databases and library collections. Many schools, churches, businesses and Union collections with ILL needs are succesfully using OPALS. There is no need to install software or purchase expensive computer hardware for this powerful Internet accessed system.
      There is no charge for software and usually nothing to install onto your workstations. The complete system is hosted and maintained over the Internet thereby freeing your computer services department of any added burden.
