Abstract:The sixteenth annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing was held at the Illini Union, University of Illinois, April 22-25, 1979. This conference differed somewhat from its predecessors. Instead of focusing on library automation per se, we chose to look at various manifestations of electronic communication in the world around us (including electronic publication, computer conferencing and electronic mail), to consider present and probable future capabilities of electronic processing and, most importantly, to study the implications of these developments for libraries and librarians. The altered character of this particular conference caused it to differ from its predecessors in another way: most of the papers in 1979 were presented by leaders in fields outside of librarianship itself.
