Abstract

Assesses the role of UNIX in the future of information and internetworking. Argues that librarians should be familiar with UNIX as so many information systems run on it, and especially because it lend itself so well to the client/server model of networking, which researchers insist is one of the few ways to ensure speedy storage and retrieval in systems that have very large databases.
