Inventory control

From: Robert J. Milevski <milevski>
Date: Thursday, March 11, 1993
As part of my manic determination to set up a wonderfully effective and
idiotproof inventory control system in the conservation lab here at
Princeton, one which will also record treatments performed (to ARL
specs) and by whom and how long it took, and one which will be indexable
and searchable in all fields especially those containing bibliographic
data, I need to consider using an existing database, like NOTIS or GEAC,
to store and retrieve treatment information rather than creating a
standalone Mac or PC system which cannot be easily linked to or
down(up)loaded to a larger database.  Whew, what a sentence!  Try saying
this out loud.  Who out there is currently inputting conservation
treatment info into their bibliographic records via the 583 or other
field?  And what have your experiences been, especially with regard to
its capabilities to be used for report writing, statistics, time
studies, etc?  Has your systems office created any site-specific (NOTIS,
or GEAC) programs which might be adapted to systems in other libraries?
Any comments privately or thru the net will be appreciated....
