From grunts to gigabytes : communications and society by Dan Lacy( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the things we'll find while traveling the information superhighway should be new public policies governing nation's - and the world's - ever-burgeoning communication systems. In From Grunts to Gigabytes, Dan Lacy uses his broad knowledge of the field's history to explore communications systems of the present and the future, their social impact, and the policies that would most appropriately shape them in the public interest. Throughout, Lacy discusses the relation of communications systems to the existence and social distribution of power, the structure of society, and the perception of reality. He traces the stages of human communication from the beginning of speech through writing, printing, commercial publishing, the mass printing and publishing of the late nineteenth century, audiovisual developments of the twentieth century, and the computer networks that send gigabytes of information quickly from place to place

Response to change : American libraries in the seventies by Virginia H Mathews( Book )

7 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of social change on libraries nationally are presented in order to provide a framework for the Indiana-oriented study of library futures. The two major postwar social changes that have most directly affected libraries are: (1) population changes in growth, distribution and quality; and (2) increased investment in scientific research and development. Four postwar developments in communications have had major effects on libraries: (1) the creation and widespread distribution of paperbound books, (2) the growth of newsmagazines as the dominant printed news medium, (3) the rise of television, and (4) the development of new technology in information storage, retrieval and dissemination. Two important ways in which libraries will be able to meet the challenges of the future are by the use of computers to automate the library's acquisitions, cataloging, circulation, inventory and statistical work and by going out, both psychologically and physically into the community which is to be served and learning to operate in terms meaningful to those they are trying to reach. It is the librarian's responsibility to use the new technology whenever it is useful, to raise and broaden professional standards, to develop broad and imaginative patterns of national cooperation, and to express a keen and pervasive sense of the library's enlarged social commitment.

Social change and the library, 1945-1980 by Dan Lacy( Book )

15 editions published between 1967 and 1969 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects upon libraries of the major social changes of the past two decades and the probably future effects of such changes are analyzed in this report, based upon a search of the professional literature, a field survey, and opinion sampling from leaders in the library profession and civic leaders belonging to the National Book Committee. Five principal future responsibilities of libraries include: (1) supporting formal education at all levels, (2) sustaining the increasingly complex operations of the government and the national economy, (3) providing opportunities for continuing self-education and retraining, (4) playing a role in the reintegration of the disadvantaged into society, and (5) providing resources for an informed public opinion and for personal growth. The impact of rapid social change will be to render the library's role more central, requiring vastly increased public support. From an institution with rather general aims which functions somewhat on the margins of our central concerns, the library will increasingly become a part of our essential machinery for dealing with these concerns, especially in core cities. The appendix includes the questionnaires used for the surveys, a summary of the survey results, and a bibliography of 157 items. (Author/JB)
