COMPUTERISATION OF LIBRARY COLLECTION PROCESS VS. INTEGRATED LIBRARY SYSTEM. EXPERIENCES OF THE JAGIELLONIAN LIBRARY (Komputeryzacja gromadzenia zbiorów a zintegrowany system biblioteczny. Doswiadczenia Biblioteki Jagiellonskiej)
The article describes the computerization process in the Library Collection and Completion Department (LCCD) of the Jagiellonian Library, regarding its integrated library system. The AFAS software for collection processes, offered by the VTLS Company at the beginning of the 90ties, and being used by the Jagiellonian Library as the only one in Poland, has not been satisfying, regardless its significant work improvement. However, a narrow range of functions resulted in the decision on creating an own software, instead of buying current collection module of Virtua. As one can observe, the LCCD does not have to register bibliographical data of incoming unordered volumes, but only those which are going to be ordered. Books incoming for free, after collective registration and accession, are passed at once to the Indexing Department.
