Planning community information utilities by Harold Sackman( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Massive social changes are bound to occur with the extension of mass information utilities: the fundamental question is how shall this massive reconstruction of social information power be designed for the best interest of people. This book grew out of an American Federation of Information Processing Societies (afips) conference, and is organized around three basic areas corresponding to the principal components of a prototypic plan to develop economically feasible and humanistically designed information utilities. Each part--information services, system design, and system management--consists of essays about such topics as municipal services, education and library services, telepurchasing and personal services, industrial and vocational services, entertainment and news services, computer communications for the community information utility, hardware, software, economic design, the municipal framework, the regulatory problem, consumer safegards, and public involvement and acceptance.
