The Cooperative Information Network; A Report.
California Librarian, v35 n3 p16-21 July 1974
The Cooperative Information Network (CIN) was formed in 1972 to respond as totally as possible to the informational needs of individuals, governmental units, and businesses located within Santa Clara County, California. A network of TWX machines links all types of libraries in the county. Libraries joining the system agree to respond as quickly as possible to queries from other libraries. Products of the system include a membership directory listing special resources of each library, workshops on using the service, and an intern program for interchange of library staffs. Three more libraries have joined the network, forming a prototypical link of what could be a state library network. (Author/PF)
