Abstract:

The 1976 Study of US Army Libraries recommended that the technical processing functions of each Army library be consolidated or centralized at the installation level. Integration of New Technology in Army Libraries determined the feasibility of installation-level networking of technical processing activities, and develops the means through which new technology can be integrated into Army Libraries. Site visits to Fort Belvoir, Virginia and Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, libraries gathered information that detailed current library technical processing operations for monographs, serials, and technical reports. Library automated turnkey systems and alternative configurations for consolidation were examined. Based on gathered data, a cost model was developed and applied to decentralized, installation-level, and command-level technical processing. Recommendations include projected organizational, staffing, and budget requirements, and an implementation plan for installation-level consolidation.
