ABSTRACT

CARDS Library Operations Policies and Procedures, Volume I

     The Central Archive for Reusable Defense Software (CARDS) program
is a DoD initiative to transfer the technologies of library-assisted
domain-specific reuse into other DoD software procedures and
procurements. The Library Operations Policies and Procedures (LOPP)
serves as a comprehensive guide for operating and maintaining a reuse
library.
     Volume One of the LOPP is aimed toward upper level management
through the technical supervisor level and provides a high level view of
the policies and procedures for library operations. Volume One provides
access to information concerning strategies for managing and maintaining
an existing reuse library system. This document provides recommendations
on implementing operations of the library, showing how to assure task
accountability and completion, and indicating an expected level of
knowledge for the staff at hand.
     Volume One focuses on the CARDS Library as its model implementation
environment.  To allow the library implementor to use this document as a
reference guide, Volume One is intentionally organized to be free of a
specific management structure.
     This is the first of two volumes of the Library Operation Policies
and Procedures (LOPP) manual. Combined, these volumes serve as a
comprehensive guide for operating and maintaining a reuse library. This
volume, Volume One, outlines recommended Policies and Procedures for
Library operations. Volume Two provides detailed Operational
Instructions, or `day-to-day' processes.

CARDS Library Operations Policies and Procedures, Volume II

     The Central Archive for Reusable Defense Software (CARDS) program
is a DoD initiative to transfer the technologies of library-assisted,
domain-specific reuse into other DoD software procedures and
procurements. Volume Two of the Library Operation Policies and
Procedures (LOPP)  provides detailed operating instructions for
`day-to-day' operation and maintenance of the library.
     Volume Two targets the technical individual who will be
implementing the policies and procedures of the LOPP, Volume One. Volume
Two provides detailed descriptions of the day-to-day tasks for operating
and maintaining a reuse library. This document also provides quick
access to the specific areas of interest and is designed to allow the
reader to retrieve only information specific to their area of interest
or concern. In addition to outlining the Central Archive for Reusable 
Defense Software (CARDS) daily operations, Volume Two contains those
forms referenced in Volume One.
     Volume Two focuses on the CARDS Library as its model implementation
environment.  To allow the library implementor to use this document as a
reference guide, Volume Two is intentionally organized to be free of a
specific management structure.
     This is the second volume of the Library Operation Policies and
Procedures (LOPP) manual. This volume, Volume Two, provides detailed
operating instructions for `day-to-day' operation and maintenance of the
library. Volume One outlines the recommended policies and procedures for
library operations.
