Information Transfer with the Ohio College Library Center Program as a Model. Paper No. 4.
Michigan Library Consortium, Detroit.
The Michigan Library Consortium (MLC) is studying the problems and possibilities of networking, with the Ohio College Library Center (OCLC) as a model and possible data base for the MLC. Standards on an international scale must be developed, and the need for constantly improving technology, particularly computers, must be recognized. Since the needs of individuals, institutions, and consortia may differ from one another, and from those of the makers of the data base, administrative and communication structures must be created to provide interface between the various network components. As the scope and range of networks increase, library and information network personnel will need to devote increasingly larger portions of their time to such communication. (LS)
