This report is intended to aid the library at Stanford University in determining: (1) How it should respond to faculty and student need to know about computer-based information systems; (2) If the library has a role in supporting awareness of, and access to information about computerized files on campus; and (3) If the library has a role in planning services centering around large data bases that will likely soon be available on campus. The author concludes that: (1) There is evidence of a need for information about computer-based information systems among faculty and students; (2) There is a sizable number of computerized files or data collections on the campus; (3) The library is the appropriate place to respond to the need for information about computer-based information systems; (4) The library has unique experience and skills that would be valuable in promoting awareness of and access to computerized files; and (5) It is to be university's advantage for the library to maintain active involvement with the groups that are developing a variety of computer-based information services on campus. It is recommended that the library augment, and actively support, services for answering requests about computer-based information systems. (Author/SJ)
