Lowell Area Council on Interlibrary Network Radio Project.
Panciers, David J.
In the fall of 1973, public, school, and college librarians in the Lowell, Massachusetts, area formed the Lowell Area Council on Interlibrary Networks (LACOIN). With a grant from the Library Services and Construction Act, Title III, LACOIN initiated library-sponsored public affairs radio broadcasting for its community. Utilizing the Lowell Technological Institute's radio station, WLTI, broadcasting began on November 18, 1973, with three hours of operation beginning at noon and incorporating three programs: public affairs/general interest interviews (Afternoon Agenda), educational philosophy and practice (School Bag), and ethnic oriented local history (Heritage). Plans were made for expanding to a full broadcasting day and incorporating several new programing concepts. LACOIN has also initiated other library cooperation projects including a union list of serials for its member libraries. This report includes program schedules for the radio project and a list of those library and non-library agencies which have participated. (Author/SL)
