Guidelines on the evaluation and selection of library software packages The evaluation and selection of a library software package, whether it be for library housekeeping, text retrieval or the creation of some other database should be approached as a project. Appropriate strategies for the selection and evaluation of software packages can be based on systems analysis and design methodologies. Stages in the project should include definition of objectives, evaluation of options, definition, selection and design, implementation and evaluation and maintenance. Some checklists of features to seek in text retrieval and library housekeeping software are included. These are discussed in the context of new developments in library software. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aslib Proceedings: New Information Perspectives Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The evaluation and selection of a library software package, whether it be for library housekeeping, text retrieval or the creation of some other database should be approached as a project. Appropriate strategies for the selection and evaluation of software packages can be based on systems analysis and design methodologies. Stages in the project should include definition of objectives, evaluation of options, definition, selection and design, implementation and evaluation and maintenance. Some checklists of features to seek in text retrieval and library housekeeping software are included. These are discussed in the context of new developments in library software.
