Integrated Rural Information System; a Preliminary Report on the Organization of Libraries and Information Networks in Pakistan.
Anwar, Mumtaz; And Others
A proposal is made to use local people's libraries as information distribution centers for the Integrated Rural Development Program in Pakistan. The local libraries would function as centers for literacy programs, adult education, open university programs, instruction in improved farming methods, and general information dissemination. Each center would have a television set for either broadcast or videotaped educational programs, and would be staffed by a tutor-librarian. The people's libraries would be at the base of a National Information System (NATIS) hierarchy which would include Tehsil, district, and provincial libraries as well as the national library. A proposed budget, extracts from national educational policy statements, and materials on a library-based independent study program in Chicago are appended. (LS)
