Rivers, William L., Ed.; Slater, William T., Ed.
The Aspen Program on Communications and Society represents a major attempt to bring together men, ideas, and institutions to pioneer in the communications field, to identify the main communications issues confronting society, and to develop effective programs to implement these policies. This handbook was compiled as a result of an Aspen program survey of existing organizations and research in the communications field; its focus is specifically on major organizations and institutions involved with the media--publications about the media, media organizations, universities conducting media research, foundations and other organizations that support such research, libraries and other repositories of media information, broadcasting action groups, basic data on cable television, and guides to government deliberations on issues involving the media. Complete addresses and information describing the institution or organization is provided for each. (Author/SH)
