The Path to Interlibrary Networking for Audio Visual Materials.
Brong, Gerald R.
The problems and prospects faced by involving the nonprint informational units in interlibrary communication and information networks are described. Nonprint materials are defined as those materials not totally dependent on the printed word for meaning. Nonprint materials were further identified as storage devices for information or experiences--these devices can be handled in information centers, or libraries, in a manner like all other informational units. Following the definition of nonprint materials is a discussion of the concept of a library or information resource center. The types of libraries holding nonprint materials are listed and ways or reasons for their further sharing of materials discussed. Specific potential problems faced in the path leading to full use of nonprint resources are presented with potential solutions. The major portion of the paper discusses the technical aspects of nonprint materials retrieval and display as well as remote transmission of information. The paper is closed by a brief review of current significant developments in the media field that are destined to have an impact on library science or the use of information.
