The Role of Technology for the Dallas Public Library in Long Range Planning.
Borgman, Christine L.
Major trends in library technology and technology in general, as indicated by information gathered through internal development work at the Dallas Public Library, professional readings, and interviews with experts, are discussed. Trends covered are: (1) internal library services focusing on a total systems approach to library automation; (2) networking of library services with emphasis on bibliographic data sharing through the proposed national network; (3) new technologies and new applications of existing ones in relation to libraries and other agencies; (4) the library as an information utility and marketing of its services as such; (5) sociological changes that will affect the changing library role; (6) library staff and facility changes to support these technological innovations.
