Description

Title:The role of networks in achieving academic library goals
Author(s):Larsen, Ronald L.
Subject(s):Academic libraries
Networked information
Abstract:In this paper, I will look more closely at computer networks and, in particular, at how networks are affecting academic libraries' ability to meet their goals. I will consider a typical set of academic library goals, and then explore the interactions between network technology and meeting goals such as these, and the implications that follow. The apparently inevitable conclusion is that the tradition of sharing that already exists among libraries will become much more fundamental to the success of libraries. Indeed, even the notion of a library as a stand-alone physical entity may be in question as libraries become inextricably linked with each other in the pursuit of their goals. The virtual library concept evolves from this line of thought.
