Toward a New Hampshire Information Network: A Study of the Feasibility of Establishing Educational Information Links Between Keene State College, Plymouth State College and the University of New Hampshire, Carried Out with the Support of the Ford Foundation.
Bardwell, John D.
The use of a microwave network to establish educational information links between four New Hampshire campuses is considered in this report. A budgetary estimate is made for a two-way microwave circuit between these points and a two-way microwave circuit between Durham and Saddleback Mountain. The proposed microwave path, the proposed route for a microwave system, and the proposed and existing educational television network are illustrated. The possibilites that the new technology of information transfer bring to national libraries and university libraries are described. The interface between information seekers and information services is discussed. The conclusion is made that television is uniquely capable of being both the fastest mode of transmission and, through the Data-Plex Systems, the communication system most nearly capable of handling mass traffic loads.
