Betty Hamilton recently said that automating elementary libraries frees
the librarian to spend more time with students and staff.  What I'd
like to know from the librarians who have done it is is that true?
Nothing I've done with a computer so far has saved me time.  It's
just increased the quality of my work and made things possible that
would not have been practical in pre-computer days.

And if it does free you from technical services, how long did it take
before that happened.  In other words how long to master the system,
correct data entry errors, etc.  I'm speaking from a district where all
cataloging is done on site.
