FACSIMILE TRANSMISSION IN LIBRARIES-A STATE OF THE ART SURVEY.
SCHATZ, SHARON
FIVE SYSTEMS, ALL OF WHICH HAVE INVESTIGATED OR ARE INVESTIGATING THE USES OF FACSIMILE EQUIPMENT AS APPLIED TO LIBRARIES, ARE SURVEYED. THE EQUIPMENT OF EACH PROJECT, INCLUDING NECESSARY COMMUNICATION LINKS, IS DESCRIBED, AS WELL AS THE RESULTS OF THOSE EXPERIMENTS NOW COMPLETED. IF TELEFACSIMILE IS TO BE USEFUL A NEED FOR A CHANGE IN SOME INTERLIBRARY LOAN PROCEDURES IS INDICATED. OTHER CONCLUSIONS OF THE STUDY ARE--(1) THAT FACSIMILE TRANSMISSION IS TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE NOW FOR MANY LIBRARY SYSTEMS, EVEN THOUGH BOUND VOLUMES STILL CANNOT BE HANDLED BY PRESENT EQUIPMENT, AND (2) THAT CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS AND PLANNING BY MANUFACTURERS WILL MAKE FACSIMILE TRANSMISSION EVEN MORE SATISFACTORY IN THE FUTURE. AN EXTENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF 56 ITEMS ABOUT FACSIMILE TRANSMISSION IS GIVEN. (CM)
