Abstract

Claims that there are three basic scenarios or models of connectivity between workstations that are likely to occur in research library settings. Looks at the use of modems to access data sources and services. Examines the use of networks, from simple networks of a few terminals connected to one computer, through to the use of the Internet to both access and disseminate information. Looks at the problems involved in accessing commercial services that are not on the Internet, and some possible solutions.
