Cable Television for Librarians.
Kenney, Brigitte L., Ed.
Drexel Library Quarterly, v9 n1&2 Jan-Apr 1973
In September 1972, a federally-funded 3-day institute was held, under the auspices of the Drexel University Graduate School of Library Science, to acquaint librarians from local State and Regional public libraries with current developments in the cable television field as they affect library planning and activities. The program utilized several different formats: formal presentations with reactor panels, hands-on experience with videotape equipment, a videotaped case study and role playing activity, and small group discussions of participants' current activities and problems with cable TV. Panels dealt with assessing information needs in a given community, ordinances and franchises, the regulatory process, networking via cable, and the Interactive Cable System (TICCIT). This report provides a summary of the presentations and panel discussions and a description of the videotaped role playing activity "Cable Comes to Midtown." (SL)
