1992: Designing information : new roles for librarians
29th Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1992). Edited by Linda C. Smith and Prudence W. Dalrymple.
The twenty-ninth annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing was held April 5-7, 1992, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The clinic theme, "Designing Information: New Roles for Librarians," reflects the availability of increasingly sophisticated hardware and software that provide librarians with new tools for designing information. Tools include software for electronic publishing, database development, and interface design, as well as hardware and software for hypermedia/multimedia. These developments present an opportunity for librarians in all types of libraries to assume new roles and to collaborate with others to produce new products and services.
