Abstract

A project to develop a national academic union catalogue for the 49 universities and major teacher training colleges of Indonesia has completed its design stages, and procurement of software and computing equipment will follow. The operational centre, will share a site in Dpok with the University of Indonesia. Early phases of implementation will concentrate on the 12 Discipline Service Centres where expertise and resources are concentrated in centres of excellence for selected subjects, to enable all students and researchers to share in this investment. In the course of the design studies, an examination was made of the library automation needs of a major university, Universitas Gadjah Mada, to ensure compatibility between national plans and end user requirements in library automation as a whole. The use of CDROM is proposed as a distribution medium for the union catalogue of at least 500,000 titles. Pilot studies will be made in parallel with retrospective conversion of existing catalogues, to check out CDROM production routes and explore approaches to subject indexing using multiple schemes and in several languages.
