Abstract

Author Alvin Toffler predicts in Future Shock that today's society is “on the edge of a long leap toward unparalleled cultural diversity”. We believe the optical videodisc is the springboard for this long leap forward and, in particular, that this new technology is destined to have a profound and permanent impact on the entire educational process. We are also confident that an inexpensive optical videodisc playback system will become standard in schools, colleges and public libraries during the next decade, and that business, professional, technological, and scientific information will be communicated increasingly through videodisc players probably within the next two or three years.

This special issue contains selected extracts from Marketing and Selling Bank Services, a learning resource from MCB University Press designed to help practising bank managers to refine and apply bank marketing skills.

Marketing, marketing channels, service levels, pricing, communication with customers, persuading the customer, creating an effective salesforce, interviewing the customer, and international banking are all aspects that are discussed. Suggestions for action are made to enable a manager to put into effect some of the ideas presented.

Abstract

This article describes the results of a survey which has been conducted by a Market Research agency, working on behalf of Kodak Limited, into the use of av aids in industrial, commercial and public undertakings throughout the UK. Any organizations which I happen to mention by name are simply examples of the types which have been contacted by the agency. Kodak does not have access to any information which links a named organization to the information they have supplied to the agency. This, as you may know, is forbidden under the code of practice of the Market Research Society.

Abstract

So NAVEX 69 is over. Looking at the 95 stands of the exhibition of audio‐visual aids and materials in the great hall at Olympia no one would have suspected that this is a year for education in which the bread has been very thinly buttered indeed. It was only when one eaves‐dropped on teacher conversations on the stands and in the bar that one could piece together a refrain which seemed to go ‘It's all very nice, but we haven't got the money to buy’. Neither is there nor the money to rent either, and it would seem that Rank REC has entered the market at an inauspicious time with its admirable Talking Page. At least this would appear to be so since the first programmes for the Talking Page are aimed at the primary school. In this period of parsimony it is encouraging to note the move made by the forward thinking Inner London Education Authority which has offered to pay for two years half the cost of all audio‐visual equipment ordered by secondary schools and two thirds of the cost of primary school orders. This scheme will relieve the strain on capitation allowances and will act very definitely in the favour of the primary school. In this way the progression of educational technology will not necessarily be over‐slowed in the London area. This view is not taken by many in education who, if there are cuts to be made, would place educational technology high on their list of priorities for retrenchment.

Abstract

Search trees presented in this article control system responses and determine appropriate subject searching approaches to user queries. Users do not explicitly choose a particular approach. Rather, systems respond with an approach based on the extent to which queries match the catalog's controlled vocabulary and produce retrievals. The benefit of incorporating search trees into online bibliographic systems is the ability to place the responsibility of determining which approach produces the best results on the system.
