Provides readers with a clear understanding of the structure of library  automation systems along with enough information about underlying  algorithms, file structures, and processing strategies to enable them to  evaluate vendor products, build a system using the techniques  described and continue to improve their own library system. After  explaining the basics of traditional automated library systems, the  author presents an integrated library system as well as the tools which  aid in the design of all aspects of these systems. The tools are  available for use and modification via anonymous FTP over the  Internet and readers can build systems or just experiment with these  tools.
