One of the functions of automated library systems is to provide management information to aid in decision making. The increase in size and complexity of library operations means that managers need an effective system to supplement information gained through direct observation. Management information generated by automated library systems in collection development, acquisitions and serials, cataloging, the online catalog, and circulation is discussed. Specific examples and their use are provided.
