1991: Networks, open access, and virtual libraries : implications for the research library


28th Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1991). Edited by Brett Sutton and Charles H. Davis.

An extended process of adaptation is taking place as libraries, along with many other kinds of organizations, come to terms with their future roles in the networked communications environment that, increasingly, they all share. It is a process of considerable complexity and extended duration and is not likely to be quickly resolved. This collection of essays is presented as a contribution to that part of the process relevant to research library services, an effort that has also produced, in recent months, several national conferences, a handful of new serial publications, numerous local workshops and training sessions, and many instances of experimentation, testing, and evaluation.

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