和文抄録

 昭和46年から47年にかけて,慶応義塾大学工学部は東京都小金井市の校舎から横浜市港北区の矢上台新築校舎に移転した。小金井時代100坪余にすぎなかった工学図書館もこれに合わせて移転を完了し,新キャンパスでは700余坪の規模を誇る近代的な情報センターに変貌した。10ヶ年計画に基くその業務はまだ端緒についたばかりだが,一学部に付属する図書館としての規模と,理工系学部の主要資料の集中管理という企てについて,この図書館の将来は注目されてよい。

本稿では,1966年に始り,現在(1972年9月)に至った図書館の近代化計画の過程を,主として管理とサービスの面から回顧し,合わせて将来の発展のコースを展望した。700坪の図書館の完成により弱小施設の悩みは一応解消された。しかし,運営の残りの2本柱である資金と人員の不足の問題はいぜん解決をみぬままに持越されている。これらの本質的な解決は一私立大学の一部局図書館の求めてとうてい得られる性格のものではないので,全国的な視野に立った情報の流通システムと協力体制の整備が一日も早く実現することが望まれる。

英文抄録

The Japan Medical Library Association has already issued five editions of the Union List of Medical Periodicals for medical libraries in Japan since 1932. Because, of the rapid growth and changes of journal collections in the libraries affiliated with the Association, however, the compiling work of the Union List now exceeds the capacity of manual processing. The Association took more than two years to accomplish the compilation of the fifth edition of the Union List and many librarians had to spend too much time to accomplish this work. Even though these librarians made great efforts toward the completion of the current edition, it became clear in the that the latest data of the holdings which we needed most were frequently not included in List.

Under these circumstances, the writer designes a computer-assisted system which will compile the Union List of Medical Periodicals in medical libraries in Japan. This system carries out the work from collecting data from the libraries through dissemination of information about the current holdings. He gives especially careful considerations about descriptions of data elements composing the computer-oriented system. When all data on the holdings of the affiliated libraries are fed into the system, available is ifnformation about the holdings data not only in the nation, but also in a region or in a subject field, such as regional union catalogs and accession lists arranged by subjects or by publishing countries for the use of acquisitions control among the member libraries. Because of flexibility of its data descriptions procedures, the system can be utilized for compilation of not only the Union List of Medical Periodicals but also union lists of other library groups in different subject fields.
