CATV and Its Implications for Libraries.
Thomassen, Cora E., Ed.
The theme of the nineteenth Allerton Park Institute, held in November, 1973, centered on the implications of cable television for libraries. Nine of the oral presentations were edited for inclusion in this collection. The subjects covered are: the relationship between libraries and cable TV; the possibilities of a community network; franchising problems and procedures; the use of cable TV for access to information; the problems and possibilities of interactive (two-way) cable television, with computer links; library planning and policy for use of cable TV; public access for community workshops; and the opportunities provided to libraries by cable TV.
