Booklist Review

Corbin provides data on automated library systems in two formats. In part one, tables compare vendors in eight respects: general information (e.g., type of company, number of customers, modules available), their systems' hardware requirements, and the acquisitions, cataloging, circulation, serials control, online catalog, and reference functions of their wares. The directory of installations in part two provides the names of contact persons, phone numbers, addresses, installation dates, and brief details about systems in use at the libraries included, which are located by vendor. This section neatly facilitates direct communication with librarians currently using a particular system. Indexes. --Patrick Dewey
