Title:What the Industry Can Offer: The Next Community Network
Author(s):Keller, James S.
Subject(s):Libraries and television
Cable television
Abstract:The topic assigned to me was "What the Industry Can Offer" an impossible topic to discuss because the industry is currently made up of such diverse viewpoints. My own company, which is the fourth largest cable television company in the country and has facilities in 1 16 cities, is undergoing a major transitional stage. The communications technology being developed now is limited only by our imagination. So I tried to subtitle my speech and came up with the following: "What does industry offer, what can it offer the library?" which is a variation of "How do you see your profession?" which led to "What is a library?" Others were "How much do you need, how soon?" "Is a depository enough?" "The society's convenience and the need to know," "The medium of plenty or the medium of waste," and, of course, 'The communications revolution" or "How to compete in the communications explosion," "When we do what we can do, what can you do?" "Community information center," or "The library as a community resource center."
