Title:Network--Or all Hang Seperately

Subject(s):Library information networks

senses of networks
Abstract:Over the past few years, there has been increasing talk of "networking." This word has meant two quite different things in library usage. First, it has meant resource sharing, efforts to reduce the cost of duplicating facilities and collections through primarily interlibrary loan agreements. Second, it has meant distribution through telecommunications of information services. The latter sense is the more recent, but the older sense is the more important because the telecommunications systems now emerging promise to allow a new age of library cooperation. Before describing this new promise, I would like to present my reasons for believing the fulfillment of the promise to be nearly ineluctable.
