Title: MAGGIE'S PLACE: Connecting with the community at the Pikes Peak Library District
Author(s): Doman, David
Subject(s): Online community information Public libraries
Abstract: The Pikes Peak Library District (PPLD) has long been known for providing access to community information through online databases. PPLD's patrons, both at terminals in the library's facilities and as remote users via dial-up lines, have had access to community information since 1978. Today, there are 10 community information databases on the menu at PPLD: Agencies, Arts, Calendar, Child Care, Courses, Clubs, Local Authors, Local Documents, Senior Housing, and Social & Economic Indicators. Collectively, these databases are known as Community Connections. The Community Connections databases total more than 10,000 records and were accessed nearly 50,000 times in 1992 (a 10% increase over 1991 usage). Most of the Community Connections databases are also available for purchase in printed form. In most cases, the entire file may be purchased, or in other files, specific portions are printable.
