RETROCON Technology and its Origin
In the years 1995 and 1996, the National Library found itself in a very paradoxical situation. Representatives of a number of both Czech and foreign libraries came to it to study the library's RETROKON technology, and libraries in some countries even adopted it with some modifications. The NL staff were invited to speak on RETROKON technology at major international conferences. The NL organized two international seminars on it. In the Czech Republic, however, due to sufficient funding, the technology was only tested on fairly small samples and never really employed in a full-scale operation.
