Title:Interactive electronic media
Author(s):Sherwood, Bruce A.; Brong, Gerald R.
Subject(s):Future trends
Interactive electronic media
Abstract:Includes a response by Gerald R. Brong. I am going to discuss two major new media : interactive electronic systems and video disc. One is already with us, although on a very small scale, and it is the kind of electronic media represented by PLATO and similar computer-based systems. Although one reads about it constantly in Popular Mechanics, the video disc is not here yet. It seems certain to come, however, and I will try to outline some of the basic properties of both these new media. Because I am not a librarian, I cannot point directly to the exact impact these media will have on libraries, but I will as a layman allude to the kinds of impact I think are likely.
