Knight, Nancy H., Ed.
Included in these proceedings are edited versions of presentations given at a conference which was designed to provide an overview of some of the major telecommunication developments likely to impact libraries and information centers in the future. Technologies reviewed include slow-scan television, teleconferencing, and videodisc. Other papers discuss technology and standards development for computer network interconnection through hardware and software, particularly packet-switched networks; computer network protocols for library and information service applications; the structure of a national bibliographic telecommunications network; and the major policy issues involved in the regulation or deregulation of the common communications carriers industry.
