1976: Changing Times, Changing Libraries

 

Allerton Park Institute Proceedings (no. 22, 1976); Edited by George S. Bonn and Sylvia Faibisoff

For the past twenty-three years, the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library Science has held annual 3-day institutes on a variety of topics of interest to librarians. In this bicentennial year it seemed appropriate for the institute to look to the future, to the possible social, scientific and technological trends that may shape our lives as the United States enters its third century. With this in mind, a group of distinguished specialists and librarians was assembled to discuss social change and its implications for libraries.

The complete text of the Institute is available here as well as the individual papers. The papers included here are:
