THE APPLE MACINTOSH IN THE '90S: PROSPECTS AND DILEMMAS. Over the past six years, technological developments have encouraged librarians to migrate more and more of their computing tasks to the desktop. Routines once left to mainframes and minicomputers are now completed on personal computers and workstations in administrative offices, reference desks, and cataloging carrels. The Apple Macintosh has grown in the past five years to meet these needs of librarians, not in any organized fashion specifically designed for librarians, but as part of a larger trend of greater computing strength for a given price, in pace with hardware offerings from other manufacturers.
