Mapping the Future: Contributed Papers Presented at the ASLA-AEMA 1992 Joint Conference (Phoenix, Arizona, October 14-17, 1992).
Hammond, Carol, Ed.
Three papers contributed to the joint conference of the Arizona State Library Association (ASLA) and the Arizona Educational Media Association (AEMA) are presented. "Participatory Evaluation: Alternatives for Library Instruction Evaluation" (Dennis Isbell and Lisa Kammerlocher) describes the experimental library instruction evaluation program of Arizona State University West (Phoenix), a team effort that emphasized improvement over personnel decisions, and encouraged experimentation. Four appendixes provide sample evaluation forms. "Advances in Map Librarianship: Automation Now and Into the Future" (Christine Kollen and Charlene Baldwin) describes current and future trends in map automation, including the dilemma of the library versus the laboratory, bibliographic access to computerized data sets, and experiences in reaching out to others involved in map automation. Eight figures illustrate the discussion. "Access and Delivery of Federal Electronic Information in the 1990s: Futures for the Depository Library Community" (Donna R. Larson-Bennett) reviews the strategic plan of the Government Printing Office regarding some of the problems of the electronic age and document delivery, and asserts that a clear and comprehensive information policy statement from Congress is needed so that information policy of the future can take a definite direction. Each paper provides references. (SLD)
