Proceedings of the Conference on Image Storage and Transmission Systems for Libraries...December 1-2, 1969, National Bureau of Standards.
Henderson, Madeline M., Comp.
The challenge of networking is now being extended to cooperative library and information center systems. There are new demands for improved techniques for image storage and transmission, specifically including automated storage and retrieval of microforms and ultra-microforms and new developments in graphic and facsimile transmission. In this conference, the state of the art and the state of the practice were reviewed as background for considering improvements in systems, experimental projects, and advanced techniques in media, communication facilities, and pictorial data processing. The many problems which remain, and possible future trends in development activities, were also discussed. (Author)
