In This Issue

By Schools Catalogue Information Service (SCIS)

In this first edition of Connect, we address issues relating to the implementation of CD-ROM technology in school libraries, based on the practical experience of a teacher-librarian.

In future issues other technologies, such as on-line searching and bulletin boards, will be discussed in terms of their practical applications. Library automation is not a pre-requisite for implementing these technologies, nor is technical expertise. Your contributions are welcomed.

The newsletter also provides information about the new ABBREVIATED CATALOGUING MICROFICHE and a review of SEARCH. We also include some tips for effective use of SCIS Dial-Up. In future issues we will include letters to the editor and their replies. If you have any issues that you would like to raise please write to the editor.
