The Rochester Public Library required all borrowers to have a library card to charge out materials at the adult circulation desk. The registration process began by having the new borrower fill out and sign a registration card. The overdues/registration staff was maintaining a file of all registration cards in addition to a computerized registration record.
The purpose of this project was to determine if the computerized records could be relied on completely and the manual card file be eliminated. Staff members of the overdues/registration section had expressed opposition to the elimination of the manual file while other staff members felt it would be more efficient to operate completely with computerized records.
