This special double issue of Library Hi Tech addresses the challenges and opportunities confronting each state. Many of the articles mention vendors serving the various libraries, databases that are being acquired, issues focusing on the Internet, and much more! Forty-six states have contributed reports to this issue.
This issue not only is an important report on the choices and decisions being made at the state and consortia levels, but also is an important guide to the key decision makers, leaders, and visionaries who play critical roles in the states. This is a reference tool!
This special theme issue of Library Hi Tech includes eight articles on technology and its impact on persons with disabilities. These articles represent a cross-section of current research and practice in the field of adaptive technology and librarianship.
This issue identifies architectural and attitudinal barriers, points out potential pitfalls facing librarians who must decide what to buy and how best to use it, provides a history of the graphical user interface and the trend toward graphics-based OPACs and World Wide Web sites, and presents an overview of the new RFB&D Internet-based online catalog.
Six additional articles also appear in this issue.
The articles in this issue deal with how the federal agencies and other organizations, including libraries, are working together to address the critical issues of our Earth's changing environment. Background articles provide context by explaining what we have done in the past, what we are doing now, and what needs to be accomplished in the future. The ensuing articles discuss the tools, standards, and policies necessary to achieve these goals; and the pilot projects necessary to test the feasibility of large-scale projects.
