Centers for Information Services, Phase II: Detailed System Design and Programming, Part 6 - CIS Seminars, Phase IIA Final Report.
Watson, Peter G.
The aim was to design a seminar which would allow time for each individual to grow into the subject, to reflect, to participate in discussions, to come back to points as appropriate -- the antithesis of a 'crash course'. The intention was to give all participants a representative introduction to the whole range of what is now available, and to discuss with them the ramifications of computerized information services in the three areas of main concern: in library-acquiring, systematizing, and providing service from, machine-readable information stores. Thus a format that was as much like a full-scale academic course as possible was chosen. A 10-week program was established with attendance based upon a commitment of two half days per week. The appropriate pedigogical setting was provided by the seminar rooms of the School of Library Service and the Campus Computing Network. Part II of this report contains the outlines of the seminar sessions. (For related documents see LI 003295-003299 and LI 003301). (Author/NH)
