Gateway 2000: A Strategic Plan for the New Hampshire Automated Information System.
Wiggin, Kendall F.
In 1982 the New Hampshire Automation Task Force made recommendations for an online statewide union catalog, which first came into use in 1984. In 1991 a subcommittee of the Automation Planning and Review Committee of the New Hampshire State Library presented a report on elements that should be addressed in a long range plan. This strategic plan is based on the subcommittee report. The New Hampshire Automated Information System aims to provide state residents with the benefits of improved interlibrary cooperation and resource sharing through the increased capacity of the system and the application of developing information technologies and to provide residents with barrier-free access to information. These goals are governed by principles that assert that libraries must become gateways to information resources. Objectives are detailed for these goals, and specific tasks are described toward meeting the objectives. A timeline lists each of the 57 tasks with each estimated completion date. (SLD)
