ABSTRACT
<p>Modern libraries are constituted within and by a tradition of techniques and practices that represent a hundred years of codified professional knowledge. This article provides a historical overview of this tradition that created a complex environment of expectation and misunderstanding for introducing library automation. A generation of systems development was needed to assimilate and further develop this tradition.</p>
