1984: Telecommunications : making sense of new technology and new legislation


21st Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1984). Edited by James L. Divilbiss

Whether the application is cataloging, public access, reference, or interlibrary loan, communication lines are usually an inescapable part of the system.
