Here is a timely book that expertly addresses the current impact of automation on the profession of librarianship in terms of its practitioners, standards, and underlying philosophy. In clear and understandable language, author T. D. Webb focuses his discussion--with practical examples--on the important decision of the location of the computer--at the library site or a remote automation center. Designed to be a practical guide to host computer location, this articulate book also addresses the broad professional issues of library automation.
