A Planning and Development Proposal.
In view of the rapidly changing hardware technology along with the quality and quantity of software and general attitudes toward educational technology, the configuration of the Audio-Visual Distribution System and the Science and Engineering Library (SEL) should be flexible enough to incorporate these variables. SEL has made significant thrusts toward the integration of its media and print collections and is making consistent effort towards collection development. The library's goal should be convenient and quick access to local and remote audiovisual materials for independent and remedial work. It should also act as a catalyst in the production of locally originated instructional materials. To meet these objectives, it is recommended that the Radio-Frequency Distribution System (RF) be adopted to provide access to AV materials. The RF system leaves open the option of accessing an automatic gear at a later time, and the film chain, one of the most costly components of RF, can also be used in local productions. Flowcharts and equipment lists are appended to this report. (Author/SL)
