Abstract:It has become common parlance that we are entering the "Information Age." We would like to take the reader with us on an exploratory voyage to the edge of some current information-age computer technology that may transform the library. A precondition for joining this expedition is an understanding of the "new world" which we hope to discover and build. It is a societal state in which the library has become one of the anchors of what we call "The Network Nation" an era in which the amalgamation of computers and communications will reduce the time and cost needed to span distances between people and information, and among people communicating, to practically zero.
