Here is an outstanding critical analysis of the impact groundbreaking technologies, both new and established, have had on resource sharing in the information industry. It offers a unique opportunity to explore the possibilities of resource sharing in the electronic information age, beyond the narrow scope of interlibrary loan. This highly selective book not only assesses the technologies that have had a profound impact on resource sharing, it also considers the political, philosophical, social, financial, legal, managerial, and attitudinal issues they have affected. Technologies that hold great promise for revolutionizing interlibrary cooperation on various levels have been included in this important analysis. Impact of Technology on Resource Sharing fosters an in-depth understanding of these technologies by including chapters that range from descriptive analyses of particular projects to philosophical discussions of the challenges of change. It questions traditional assumptions while providing an opportunity to examine the practical technological options available to libraries today and in the near future. This thought-provoking book introduces beginning level library professionals to the changes technological innovations have caused in resource sharing. For more advanced professionals, it is a valuable review of several areas of technology and resource sharing including: CD-ROM union catalogs collection analysis using the OCLC/AMIGOS CD local integrated systems national bibliographic databases/utilities large-scale system interconnection Z39.50 Internet/NREN networking high schools political/social impediments to resource sharing financial issues of resource sharing history of library networking Public service, technical service, and systems librarians will gain a better understanding of technical issues in language that is easy to understand. Library administrators will benefit from the review of issues important to the management and decision making process for the future of interlibrary cooperation and sharing.

Supplementing your local collection through resource sharing is a smart way to ensure your library has the resources to satisfy the needs of your users. Marshall Breeding’s new Library Technology Report explores technologies and strategies for sharing resources, helping you streamline workflows and improve resource-sharing services by covering key strategies like interlibrary loan, consortial borrowing, document delivery, and shared collections. You’ll also learn about such trends and services as: OCLC WorldCat Resource Sharing, and other systems that facilitate cooperative, reciprocal lending System-to-system communications that allow integrated systems to interact with resource-sharing environments Technical components that reliably automate patron requests, routing to suppliers with tools for tracking, reporting, and staff intervention as needed Specialized applications that simplify document delivery, such as Ariel, Odyssey, or OCLC’s Article Exchange How the NISO Circulation Interchange Protocol (NCIP) can enable borrowing among consortial libraries using separate integrated library systems The Orbis Cascade Alliance consortium, examined using a case study

Silicon chip technology; microprocessor technology; information technology; or quite simply new technology. These are some of the names representing the microelectronics revolution depending upon the audience being addressed by speaker or writer. No previous new industrial development has caused such widespread publicity and discussion amongst users and researchers as the new technology. Concern is being expressed about the effects of new technology on employment, job satisfaction, social life, leisure activities and the economics of commerce and industry. The late 70s saw many doom-laden predictions of those effects but by 1983 both management and trade unions were taking a more objective view of the social and economic impacts, and many correspondents now see the new technology as a means of opening up new industries and overcoming the effects of world recessions. The "chip" has involved the factory floor, the office, the supermarket and the home. Electronic funds transfer, electronic shopping, microelectronic domestic appliances, word processors and microprocessor-controlled machinery mean that the new technology has pervaded all aspects of social and economic life, and the developed countries are now coming to accept it as part of society as a whole. Inevitably the flood of literature on the social and economic impacts of new technology has been overwhelming. Unfortunately the quality of information and arguments propagated at conferences, in journal papers and research reports has indicated that there has been little quantifiable evidence available on the effects of these impacts.
