Contemporary Trends in Information Delivery. Program for a Workshop. December 11 and 12, 1974, San Francisco Public Library.
A workshop, Current Trends in Information Delivery, held in December 1974, was attended by 337 librarians, including Joseph Becker from the National Commission on Libraries and Information Services (NCLIS) who spoke about the national library network which NCLIS is proposing; Gerald Newton of the California State Library who spoke on library networking in the U.S. and California; and Gil McNamee, Bay Area Reference Center Director, who spoke on the proposed 17-state Western Regional Library Network. The proceedings also included two library-oriented computer demonstrations: Stanford's BALLOTS (Bibliographic Automation of Large Library Operations Using a Time-sharing System), and Lockheed's DIALOG (an on-line literature searching service). The workshop was videotaped by the staff of San Francisco Public Library's new federally funded California Video Resources Project. This report also includes a list of library networks, a list of acronyms and definitions in the field of library automation, a brief glossary of terms relating to library networks and cooperation, and an overall bibliography.
