Bishop, Ann P., Ed.
This annual conference, with over 25 speakers and 200 attendees, provided an opportunity for information professionals to discuss their experiences and concerns related to computer networking. The papers presented in this proceedings focus on providing network access, training network users, and incorporating networked information into library operations. The book contains 26 papers written by information professionals from a wide variety of settings. Topics include: (1) the use of computer networks in public, school, academic, and special libraries to accomplish institutional goals, provide traditional and new services, and communicate with users; (2) legal, economic, and policy issues related to the electronic dissemination of information; (3) bibliographic control of networked information and the new generation of networked OPACs (online public access catalogs); and (4) new roles for information professionals in the networked environment.
