Hollowell, Mary Louise, Ed.
Publi-Cable is a nonprofit consortium of individuals and civic groups which is dedicated to furthering the social, civic, educational, cultural, and community uses of cable television technology. To fulfill its information sharing function, Publi-Cable has collected a series of 16 papers into a handbook. The first section provides general background on cable and new technologies to serve as a setting for activities and decision making. The second section describes activities in a wide range of actual uses, including chapters on minorities, schools, health, churches, libraries, and museums, and papers on public access, profit and loss, and public affairs programing. Appendixes include a glossary, a selected bibliography, and the Publi-Cable policy statement. (SK)
