Title:On-line interactive systems in libraries, now and in the future
Author(s):Warheit, I.A.
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation
Online data processing
Abstract:For the sake of clarity one can discuss on-line interactive systems with reference to their technology, their economics, and their application and utilization, even though all these aspects are obviously intertwined and inseparable. They will, however, be considered separately. On-line, interactive systems were conceived long ago, even before computers. Vannevar Bush's Memex was essentially an on-line interactive system, as were the first teaching machines. What is considered the first computer-based interactive systems were implemented by M. I. T. in its SAGE system which responded to RADAR signals. From a practical, economically feasible point of view, however, certain technological developments were necessary before on-line processing could be widely adopted.
