Title
Estimating the number of PAC terminals and workstations for library online catalogs
Source
Online libraries and microcomputers. 11(1993) no.12, S.1-4
Year
1993
Abstract
Discusses the factors to be considered in deciding how many public access terminals and workstations should be installed for library online catalogues. Considers building size and layout as significant factors in this matter and notes that the introduction of new physical facilities usually requires extra terminals. Outlines the effect of increasing the resources available through the system, providing peripheral equipment (e.g. printers), and providing a graphical user interface. Notes the impact of remote users when the system is networked and the value of providing direct plug-in network connections to institutional networks for users who bring in their own laptops. Highlights questions of system capacity and communications as factors to be considered also
