Over the past decade, successful law library administrators have found the automation of some library tasks necessary and desirable for providing comprehensive and cost-effective library services to their constituents. Use of bibliographic utilities, such as OCLC and RUN, for cataloging and interlibrary loans has become commonplace, and the use of remote data bases, such as LEXIS and WESTLAW, for legal research has become an important adjunct to the law library. Following the initial success of these systems, many law librarians have turned their attentions to other functions that might be improved through automation.
