Abstract: Selection of an integrated Online Library System (lOLS) should begin with an informed, supportive, and enthusiastic administration fully committed to the move from a manual to an automated environment. In early 1982 the UHM Biennium Budget (1983-85) ranked automation as a top priority. Decisions to streamline many processing procedures, freeze the Card Catalog system and implement a Computer Output Microform (COM) Catalog followed shortly thereafter. In response to the growing serious committment to library automation and interest in purchasing a turnkey solution I undertook an "educational" tour of automated libraries and integrated online library system (IOLS ) vendors. It was especially helpful to examine academic library installations to see how they are dealing with situations we will encounter in Hawaii. In January 1983, preparation of the entire library staff for participation in the automation process began.
