Library Information Network Experiment with ATS-F Satellite Telecommunications.
Gaven, Patricia; Williams, R. David
ATS-F will be used by the Alaskan library community to develop a knowledge base for the library function of information delivery utilizing satellite technology. The experiment comprises three segments: (1) a weekly 15-minute participatory audio-video unit aimed at school children; (2) a weekly half-hour audio-video unit aimed at a variety of adult audiences; and (3) a daily, one-hour audio unit aimed at information aides and library personnel within the tripartite Regional Library Network. The program for school children will utilize library resources and materials supporting "Man: A Course of Study" and the audio-video potential of ATS-F to reinforce information gathering and research skills. Two broad objectives form the basis for the Library Information Network experiment: to utilize satellite communications to investigate the possibilities of expanding traditional library operations, and to explore nontraditional library/ information center operations and their application to satellite technology. The experiment is planned for September 1974 through August 1975. A list of job descriptions for key personnel is included, plus a budget for both the developmental and operational phases.
