The New Technologies: What Are They, How Can We Get Them, and Why Don't We Have Them?
Lowenthal, Ralph A.
Bibliographers and librarians are aware of the new information technologies in information storage and retrieval. CD-ROMs and online database systems are two technologies used daily to assist users in accessing needed information. Although these resources are lacking in the fields of journalism and mass communication, possibilities for computerized resources do exist: the Communication Abstracts could be transferred to an online or CD-ROM format; a new clearinghouse that is specific to journalism and mass communication instruction could be created in ERIC; and/or an electronic bulletin board could be created to facilitate the sharing of user education resources.
