Description

Title:The scholar and his library in the computer age
Author(s):Marchand, James W.
Subject(s):Electronic texts
Information retrieval
Academic libraries
Abstract:The advent of powerful high-speed computers and the development of networked information resources have freed the scholar from the limitations of his private library, but new problems have arisen. Lack of standardization in both hardware and software, reluctance on the part of many scholars to master the new technology and resources, and the overwhelming choices facing the adventurous modern scholar present barriers to optimal information retrieval. The library must help resolve many of these problems and must utilize the new technology to store, catalog, retrieve, and deliver information regardless of its format.
