July 1979 Reviews Correction In the article, in the previous issue of Program (V. 13 no. 2, April, 1979), by Crennell and Marsh on the Rutherford Laboratory catalogue, the figure given on Page 75 for the recommended maximum number of records for a FAMULUS file is given as 30,000. Readers should note that this figure should be 3,000. E. MARSH Rutherford Laboratory MORRISON, E., and GILMORE, J. Directory of automated library and information systems in Australia (Victorian edition). Melbourne Victorian Association for Library Automation (VALA), 1978. 57 pp. $A5.00. ISBN 0 90847 800 3. This book is modelled in part on the Aslib "Directory of operational computer applications in United Kingdom libraries and information units". It is arranged in three sections — Applications; List of libraries; Processing Centres, Bureaux, Networks; and has two indexes to Library Type, and Computers. It includes references to operational applications in 43 librar ies, which compares well with the 170 libraries in the Aslib Directory, and is a good indication of the rapid growth of library automation in one state in Australia. If support is forthcoming, future editions will be extended to include other states. C.W.J. WILSON Atomic Energy Research Establishment, Harwell HALL, J.L. On-line bibliographic data bases 1979 directory. London: Aslib, 1979. 94pp. ISBN 0 85142 115 6. £9.50. Under five or six headings each, this directory gives details of 163 databases arranged in alphabetical order. Those from 119 onwards, however, are listed separately as being either databanks or not yet available. There is both a keyword index (but not a KWIC one) which assists in determining relevant databases for a given subject, as well as a table which gives broad subject groupings. The directory ends with a name index. It seems that for the time being we are to have competing directories namely that from Aslib and the one from EUSIDIC. One can only hope that such wasteful duplication will cease very soon. A centralised service of information on these databases is surely possible among information brokers. With the advent of EURONET one would hope that eventually all such information will be made available on line and kept up-to-date with the minimum of effort and delay.
