1981: New Information Technologies - New Opportunities
18th Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1981). Edited by Linda C. Smith.
The eighteenth annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing was held April 26-29, 1981, at the Illini Union, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. New technologies for processing, transmitting and storing information present new opportunities and challenges to libraries. The papers from the clinic discuss current developments and applications of these technologies, together with some of the issues which they raise.
The complete text of the proceedings is available here as well as the individual papers. The papers included here are:
- Technology Alone Is Not Enough - Ronald L. Wigington
- The Microcomputer Catalyst - Howard Fosdick
- Applications Of Microcomputers In Libraries - Lawrence A. Woods
- Word Processer Applications At The USDA's Technical Information Systems - David R. Hoyt

(Graduate School of Library and Information Science. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 1981)Five years ago it was predicted that microcomputers would take the library world by storm. As a matter of fact, this has not happened. Rather, there has been a steady, but quiet, grassroots movement introducing ...
(Graduate School of Library and Information Science. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 1981)Many have traced the evolution of information transfer from drawings on the walls of caves to inscriptions on stone tablets, to scribes writing on papyrus or other early forms of paper, to "Gutenberg technology." By ...
(Graduate School of Library and Information Science. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 1981)Videotex and teletext are terms that are becoming harder and harder to define, and it is usually necessary to begin by explaining what the terms originally meant. Videotex has been used to refer to computerized ...
Videodiscs are a storage device for information, similar to scrolls, books, motion pictures, or phonograph records. The medium itself is not unlike the phonograph record, and videodiscs can be mass-produced by a stamping ...
This paper presents a framework for looking at different kinds of input/ output devices, and provides some general characteristics regarding input/ output devices currently on the market. This paper will cover personal-use ...
