Abstract

LIBRARY WORKSTATIONS AND THEIR SOFTWARE PLATINUM'S BIBLIOTECH FOR THE MACINTOSH. Applications over the last half decade designed specifically for libraries and their workstations have often been expensive, erratic, and frustratingly inadequate in providing solutions to daily routines for library staff. Librarians in turn have switched to the more difficult but less costly option of using offtheshelf, commercial software in libraries, modifying applications for their own purposes. As a result, the history of software usage in libraries over the past five years essentially is a story of template creation and inventive reprogramming on the part of librarians and their staffs to create easytouse yet effective tools.
