Towards More Effective Nationwide Library and Information Networking in Canada. Final Report of the Canadian Computerized Bibliographic Centre Study. 1980-03-03.
Duchesne, R. M.; And Others
The two purposes of this report are to present concrete proposals related to the need for the National Library of Canada to facilitate the development of nationwide bibliographic and associated communications networks, and to outline the relevant network concepts assumed in framing the nine recommendations and the related implementation proposals that are presented. These proposals are intended to serve as an early practical step towards a wider and more complete nationwide library and information network in the longer term. Notes and references are provided for the three major chapters, as well as an implementation chart with timelines and a network flowchart. Discussion of long term trends and needs for Canadian library and information networking and notes on European and U. S. arrangements to promote nationwide and community-wide networking are appended.
