Nebraska's Information Network: A State of the Art Survey.
Norman, Ron
No library in Nebraska can be self-sufficient; and, what Nebraska badly needs is a pool of knowledge, a total information source. Nebraska's problem is how to make information in one part of the state available to a user in another part. A parallel problem is how to make this information available as quickly as possible. The requirements for a library system are: (1) a storage mechanism, (2) an orderly means for getting at the information and (3) rapid retrieval and dissemination. These requirements are fulfilled in Nebraska by (1) its libraries, (2) the Nebraska Union Catalog, and (3) the use of telecommunication equipment. This information network is considered to be an efficient one, and those in charge of its operation have shown a willingness to continually re-evaluate the system and to expand the network beyond its present limits whenever the opportunities arise.
