New Developments in Information Services.
McAllister, Lois, Ed.
The purpose of this conference was to: (1) improve reference and research library resources and services within its area by identifying, sharing and developing such resources and services and (2) further inter-library cooperation, communication and transportation of materials within the area of the Council. Aware that many information needs exist in the area, the Council hopes to inform the people in the North Country that it is willing and able to assist in meeting these needs. An overview of the Reference and Research Resources (3R's) Program is followed by a presentation of the role of Xerox Corporation or University Microfilms in information services. A representative from International Business Machines discussed the use of computers as library tools. The library system developed at Eastman Kodak Company is also described. Many information systems now in use or being studied are briefly described including: (1) the Albany Regional Medical Program Consulting Group for Library Service, (2) the Interuniversity Communications Council (EDUCOM), (3) National Chemical Information System, (4) National Physics Information System, (5) National Mathematics Information System and (6) National Biological Information Network. Full transcripts of all speeches are given in the proceedings. (NH)
