Local Area Network: What Can a Library Do with It?
Dermody, Melinda Bako
With the ever growing interest that libraries have in the Internet, the potentials of other computer resources may be overlooked or under-utilized. One such resource is the campus local area network (LAN). For libraries, a campus LAN presents possibilities ranging from simple library promotion to networked databases. The Internet provides unlimited but sometimes unreliable resources; a local area network can provide controlled, relatively reliable and custom-tailored resources and services for a campus. New Mexico State University-Alamogordo Library attempts to make use of the campus LAN to enhance and expand upon traditional resources offered to users, and also to provide new and unique library services. This paper describes how the library makes use of the campus LAN in library instruction, library services, automation supplement, database access, and library promotion. Reproductions of computer screens are included which depict and list resources available on the Library Noticeboard. (Author/SWC)
