American Society for Information Science, Washington, DC.
Presented as a public service in anticipation of the October 1979 White House Conference on Library and Information Services, the eight papers in this booklet call attention to the key issues which the American Society for Information Science (ASIS) believes have developed from proliferating information and for technological advances. Each of the brief papers is intended to serve as a 'launching pad' for further discussion on specific topics: "Information as a National Resource," Joseph Becker; "'Information Literacy'--Awareness of and Access to Information Resources," Alan R. Benenfeld; "Costs and Funding of Libraries and Information Centers," Ralph E. O'Dette; "The Library of Congress and Its Nationwide Cataloging Support Services," Lenore S. Maruyama; "Proprietary Rights Versus the Public's Need for Information and Data Resources Stored in Various Media," Douglas E. Berninger; "The Role of the Private Sector in Serving National Information Needs," Paul Zurkowski; "Benefits of Information Science," Andrew A. Aines; and "Policies to Coordinate Information Resources," Vernon E. Palmour. An article by Esther E. Horne and Gerald J. Sophar provides a brief overview of the papers. (JD)
