Summary, Etc.As far as the staff benefit is concerned, they specifically gained a broad view of their library and of the value of information technology. The enhancement of skills, capabilities and competence followed after the information systems planning experience
 Based on their experiences, planning concepts such as steps/activities, motivational factors, problems encountered, key success factors and benefits of information systems planning were also found applicable
 In these libraries, factors which led to information systems planning were driven by technology, management, financial considerations and service
 The benefits derived by libraries in the conduct of information systems planning can be viewed on two levels: the organizational level and the individual staff level. The organizational benefits include: 1) strengthened culture of planning, 2) smooth and successful implementation of the project, 3) clarified goals and directions, 4) potential problems anticipated, 5) decisions drawn wisely, 6) broadened staff horizons, 7) enhanced staff capabilities, skills and competence, and 8) uplifted staff morale
 The information systems planning of the libraries in this study were successful due to factors internal to the organization such as staff commitment and capability and external factors such as the services of a consultant. The two main problems encountered in information systems planning relates to technology and staff capability for the undertaking. Technology is developing so fast that planners have to constantly keep track of it. Knowledge and skills in planning seems to be inadequate
 The libraries in this study undertook information systems planning with no strict adherence to any formal planning approach. The IRRI Library was primarily guided by the method prescribed by Duval and Main (1992). The Rizal Library went through rigorous planning within the context of a consortium. On its own, the ICA Library conducted information systems planning and some of the steps they undertook relates to steps prescribed by some formal planning approaches. The National Library experience may be considered another formal planning approach by itself
 The method used in this research was the case study method. Data were gathered through the structured interview using a questionnaire. Documentary sources were also looked into. Analytical discussion was the main approach in data analysis and presented in narrative form
 The specific objectives of the study were: 1)to describe the steps/activities in information systems planning by libraries with integrated library systems; 2)to identify the factors which influenced information systems planning; 3) to determine the problems encountered by libraries in information systems planning; 4) to highlight the key success factors in undertaking information systems planning; and 5)to identify the benefits of information systems planning
 This study was an investigation and documentation of the information systems planning experiences of the selected libraries in the Philippines. It involved four selected types of libraries namely, the National Library (public library), the International Rice Research Institute Library (special library), the Rizal Library of the Ateneo de Manila University (academic library), and the Immaculate Conception Academy High School Library (school library), Greenhills, San Juan Metro-Manila
