Broadbent, Marianne; Schmidmaier, Dagmar
Assembled to provide an introduction to computer and communications technology, systems analysis, and networking for school librarians, this booklet brings together articles, addresses, and teaching materials prepared by the compilers for journals, conferences, and a series of continuing education courses for school librarians in Australia. The collection is divided into three sections: (1) a set of background readings, (2) a series of working notes on information system technology and processes, and (3) course outlines. Among the background readings are: "Technology, Systems, and School Librarians: An Approach to Continuing Education,""Information Retrieval in the School Library,""Sharing Technology in School Libraries,""School Libraries and Networks," and "Computer Applications for School Libraries: Some Considerations." A selected bibliography and glossary of acronyms accompany the papers. The working notes address such topics as computer technology, machine readable cataloging (MARC) and bibliographic records, keyword indexing, flowcharting, systems analysis, and system costing. Programs for 2- and 4-day courses on school libraries and information needs and a sample keyword-out-of-context (KWOC) index are appended. (JL)
