Community Information Systems.
Freeman, Andrew
Information is provided on technological and social trends as background for a workshop designed to heighten the consciousness of workers in community information systems. Initially, the basic terminology is considered in its implications for an integrated perspective of community information systems, with particular attention given to the meaning of isolation within a community context. The dynamics of information processes and their relationships to societal groupings are also discussed. Secondly, new technologies such as Viewdata, BOM (Brainstorming on Microfiche), and computer conferencing are considered as they impact on community information systems, and questions posed by mainstream media and databases and their alternatives are discussed in respect to the national or international linkages they may provide. In the final section, a number of questions are asked dealing with the implications of community information systems for both individuals and societies as a whole. (Author/RAA)
