LS2000 is "live" in King Circulation and three public access
terminals for online catalog searching are operational in the
King Reference Dept. The Cataloging Dept. is actively adding
records daily to the online catalog. The Agriculture, Law and
Medical Libraries are also adding their cataloging into the
online database. 7
we are well into the process of adding the gap tapes to the
online database. These tapes contain the bibliographic records

created between June 1984 and June 1985--after the cutoff date
L for the initial database and until the date on which cataloging
I began going directly into the LS2000 database. A considerable
@ number of retrospective conversion records are also included on
4 the gap tapes. We have about 30,000 of the total 90,000 gap
2 records loaded, bringing our overall database to a size of some
345,000 records.
The acceptance testing of the system continues. we are
carefully examining all functions of the LS2000 for accuracy and
reliability and also testing the system response time according
to standards set out in our contract. This process will go on
until all functions have passed our stringent standards and we
are satisfied that the system as a whole is stable. In the
meantime, staff input on any system problem is essential. Please
report any unusual response in using LS2000 to either Mike Lach,
Gail Kennedy, Tari Keller, or Bernie Baldini in the Medical
- Center Library.
For those staff who have not yet experienced using LS2000, _
we encourage you to try it! The public terminals in the
Reference Dept. are equipped with guides for using the system.
We are finding that library patrons are, for the most part,
picking up the basics with little or no staff intervention. The
Planning Committee will be working on more formal staff training
programs, but everyone should be able to gain basic familiarity
with LS2000 via the self-instruction guides.
We appreciate the spirit and effort of teamwork which has
already gone into the LS2000 implementation. (Contributed by

The libraries have acquired, on a trial basis, the InfoTrac
and LegalTrac automated reference systems from Information Access
Comppany. InfoTrac is roughly equivalent in coverage to IAC's
Magazine Index and Business Index, which have been available in
King Library for several years now on ROM microfilm readers;
LegalTrac, which offers the same coverage as IAC's Legal Resource
Index and Current Law Index, is available in the Law Library.
The new systems offer access to the respective IAC databases,
stored on videodisc, via IBM-pc's designed to require no special
training or staff assistance. Labeled function keys and help
screens allow users to search and retrieve by LC subject headings
and to move instantaneously from one part of the index to
. another. (Cross-references are included; a special "Subject
Guide" feature provides an on-demand display of all subject
headings used.) Each station is equipped with an inkjet printer

 { *3-
= so that patrons can quickly produce a copy of a single citation
. or a full bibliography. Coverage of both systems begins in 1982,
with monthly videodisc updates. InfoTrac includes current
citations to the New York Times and the wall Street Journal.
._ Two InfoTrac stations are in King Library Reference, and two
‘ LegalTrac stations are located in the Law Library. Both have
proved to be very popular with students and faculty. Library
staff are encouraged to have a look, and to direct any comments
to reference librarians or to fill out one of the questionnaires
near the access stations. (Contributed by Brad Grissom.)

planning and implementation, future benefits, etc. to the Board.
