Telecommunications
Abstract:The telecommunications industry in the United States is far larger than most people realize. To give some idea of its size, shipments of telecommunications equipment in 1981 totaled about $35 billion, and approximately 15,000 telecommunications professionals attend a typical trade show. The industry is characterized by brisk competition and a heady atmosphere of near science fiction innovation. My purpose here will be to highlight some recent developments that have particular significance for libraries.
