The New Macintoshes as Library Appliances. Can an information appliance be a library workstation? Can a computer that is low‐cost, easy‐to‐use, and relatively fast for its price also crunch data, manipulate text, invent graphics, and respond to sound? If a CPU is designed for consumers can it also work in libraries? Or should librarians resign themselves to the hands of specialists, those who argue that the best machine to handle bibliographic files is large, complex, and expensive?
