reviewed had at least one individual responsible for system management, although the duties varied from site to site depending upon local policies and environment. Furthermore, the emphasis was toward developing in-house expertise and maintaining local control of the system. In those situations where a staff member was given the responsibility of managing the ILS in addition to his or her preexisting duties, the extra time and effort needed to properly manage the system was difficult, if not impossible, to achieve. Finally, cooperation with the computing center is essential. All of the libraries have operational links with university computing centers. The technical issues involved in linking to external resources such as the Internet, bibliographic utilities, and campus local area networks, require the expertise of those trained in computer and telecommunications technologies. In this way, both the library and the computing center benefit from a cooperative and congenial relationship.
