Bibliographical Center for Research - Rocky Mountain Region, Inc., Denver, CO.
This is a feasibility study of a communications system for Wyoming libraries with recommendations for its installation. The basic recommendation calls upon the Wyoming State Library to undertake a demonstration project in rapid interlibrary communications, using teletype (TWX) facilities between selected libraries for a period commencing as soon as possible within the 1967-68 fiscal year and concluding in fiscal 1970-71, using LSCA Title III funds. The study is presented in seven chapters: (1) background of the study; (2) aims, methodology and limitations of the study; (3) reasons for an interlibrary communications system; (4) designation of regional communications centers; (5) equipment, costs and funding; (6) contractual agreements; and (7) making the system effective. An index to the recommendations is given. Appendix five is a bibliography. (Author/NH)
