Abstract

EDP can provide a collection with better specimen documentation, complete cross-indexes and rapid information retrieval and reporting capabilities. EDP costs vary widely with the circumstances and objectives of a project but are now within the reach of most collections. Considering its profound impact on the value of a collection, EDP is a bargain compared to other areas of cost in the collections.- Installation of EDP requires a review of procedures, a statement of objectives, reorganization of the current system and establishment of rigorous standards, so it also requires a strong committment in order to succeed. A trusted staff member with authority and EDP potential should be put in charge, and at least one collection already using EDP should be visited.
