Document Delivery: An Annotated Selective Bibliography


Khalil, Mounir A., Katz, Suzanne R., Computers in Libraries


Some of the abstracts in the bibliography were derived from those available in various online databases and existing bibliographies, if the compiler considered them sufficiently descriptive of the item listed.

C21 Aman, Mohammed M, William W. Fong, and Virgil Diodato. "Selecting a local area network for an academic network." Electronic Library 8 (August 1990):249-253.

The School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee did a case study of selecting and using a local area network (LAN) in an academic environment. One advantage of having a LAN at SLIS is the use of electronic mail, and improvement in office management and competitive research. C2) Arms, Carolyn R. "Using the national networks: BITNET and the Internet." Online 14 (September 1990):24-29.

Promotes the use of the national telecommunications networks by librarians to enable them to act as guides to the merging infrastructure of machine-readable information. Suggests, as a first step, the promotion of electronic mail and electronic bulletin boards. Describes procedures such as downloading of files on BITNET and Internet, as well as logging on the remote systems, online catalogs, and local databases via Internet.

* Bevilacqua, Ann F. "Hypertext: Behind the hype." American Libraries 20 (February 1989):158-162.

The author, a hypertext expert, defines and describes hypertext, discusses the history of this new software tool, its applications, and limitations. She deplores the fact that the driving force behind the current hypertext projects has not been libraries, but scholars. "They are building a hypertext world and we are not yet a part of it." She urges librarians to involve themselves in this new world.

* Bingham, Sanford and Rex Roberts. "Machines of enlightenment." Columbia (Fall 1990):26-31.

Tracing the revolutionary changes wrought by the impact of computer revolution technology that marked the "dawning of the Information Age," the authors describe various communication technologies (fax, audiotex, hypertext, fiber-optic cable, satellites), and the facilitated access to information made possible by library bibliographic networks. But they caution against "threats to freedom inherent in increasing technological sophistication.'"

[2] Bonk, Sharon. "Interlibrary loan and document delivery in the United Kingdom." RQ 30 (Winter 1990):230-240.

Describes the structure of the interlibrary loan system in the United Kingdom, and suggests implications for American libraries. The British Library Document Supply Centre (DSC) is explained; costs to borrowers and lenders are discussed; and strategic planning involving changing technology, politics, and economics is considered.

* Britten, William A. "BITNET and the Internet: Scholarly networks for librarians." College & Research Libraries News 51(2), (February 1990):103-107. Provides some tips on mastering the mysteries of an increasingly popular academic communications network.

* Brown, Barry N. and Marianne Farr. "Sharing electronic databases through interlibrary loan." PNLA Quarterly 55 (Summer 1991):19-21.

Although interlibrary loan functions increase accordingly as access, instead of ownership, becomes the maxim of most large libraries, there are surprisingly few provisions for sharing electronic databases such as CDROM products and local computer databases. This article examines how existing interlibrary loan procedures can be expanded to accommodate electronic databases as well. Some areas discussed are database ownership, interlibrary loan services, and copyright.

* Buckland, Michael K. "Library materials: Paper, microform, database." College and Research Libraries 49 (March 1988):117-122.

Buckland compares the characteristics of paper or microform library materials, electronic publications, and online databases in terms of equipment needs, cost effectiveness, budgeting, and satisfaction of user's needs, offering suggestions for effective integration of these materials.
