1987: Questions and Answers: Strategies for Using the Electronic Reference Collection

 

24th Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1987). Edited by Linda C. Smith.

The twenty-fourth annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing was held April 5-7, 1987, at the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign. The clinic theme, "Questions and Answers: Strategies for Using the Electronic Reference Collection," addressed the impact of automation on public services in libraries. Reference work in libraries of all types is being transformed by the availability of sources in electronic form which supplement printed sources and paper files. These new sources offer an opportunity to enhance reference and information services if librarians can learn how to use them effectively.

The complete text of the proceedings is available here as well as the individual papers. The papers included here are:
