Topics include provision of free public access to microcomputers (justification, objectives, equipment specifications, uses and software, staff training, policies and procedures in program implementation, and users); a survey of 100 U.S. public libraries which was conducted to gather information on microcomputers for public use; hardware, software, finances, personnel, and planning considerations; online searching with a microcomputer; introducing microcomputers to library users; microcomputer-based systems for library service applications (interlibrary loan, circulation, reference services, and overdue notices); and electronic library and home information delivery system highlights. In addition to bibliographical information and the annotations, ERIC accession numbers are also provided. (THC)
