This collection of essays and responses by 18 specialists and librarians focuses on three research perspectives: (1) governmental, economic, and technological changes; (2) possible results of change in the humanities, education, and social institutions; and (3) the process of change and ways to create conditions for change. Each specialist's essay is followed by a librarian's response which highlights the essay's implications for librarians and expresses a point of view.

Thompson; The Future of Government: Trends and Emerging Conditions, by Clement Bezold; Prospects for Women in the Paid Labor Market, by Ralph Smith; Interactive Electronic Media, by Bruce A.
