Association of Research Libraries, Washington, DC. Office of Management Studies.
This 11-document kit introduces the current and planned uses of telecommunications facilities in the computerized information systems of several research libraries, public libraries, and library groups contacted in 1983. The first two documents are excerpts from reports on networks: "Telecommunications: An Overview for OCLC," and "Request for Information, Carnegie Study on Distributed Processing." Seven documents relating to interconnection among libraries are presented: (1) a Columbia University Memorandum; (2) a draft of "Scholarly Communications in the 1990's and Beyond: A Strategic Assessment of the Library and Computing Functions of Columbia University"; (3) excerpts from "University of California at San Diego Telecommunications System Project: Request for Information. Final Report and Recommendation"; (4) excerpts from "Administrative Information Systems Plans," (Yale University); (5) "Network Library System (NLS) Project," (University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Chicago); (6) "Automated Library Circulation System Communication System Configuration," (Peninsula Libraries Automated Network, California); and (7) excerpts from "Telecommunications Research Paper," by Patricia Copenhaven Rich. Excerpts of "Automation Requirements--The Branch Libraries" from the New York Public Library discuss gateways and links, and excerpts from two papers, "Application Level Protocol Development for Library and Information Science Applications: volume 1, Service Definition," and "Telecommunications Information Center," (The George Washington University), examine standards. Five selected references are listed. (LMM)
