---------------How to Access Electronic Information---------------
More and more information is available in electronic form. Some sources, like library catalogues, are easy to use whether one is familiar with computers or not.
The intent of Pathways: How to Access Electronic Information is to introduce the various forms of electronic information. It is a first step in the use of computers to access information from your home, at your library, or through another institution. You will find tips on what is available and where some of the difficulties lie.
The first part of the book provides basic information on OPACS, CD-ROMS, online resources, networks such as the Internet, and copyright issues to be considered in using the new technologies. The two appendices feature "Health and the Computer" and a statement from the Canadian Library Association on "Information and Telecommunication Access Principles". The booklet concludes with a glossary of some technical terms, a selected bibliography of Canadian and us books and periodicals, and an index.
Technical terms in italics appear in the glossary.
