The librarian's electronic environment.

KOKAS Károly

Thanks to the Hungarian Information Infrastructure Development Programme more and more libraries in Hungary can avail themselves of the benefits of computerized networks. The first part of the article discusses the use of electronic mail in libraries, and various electronic „clubs” (listserv). The access to bulletin-board systems and online public-access catalogues from Hungary is illustrated by the example of the British computerized academic information system JANET. Finally, from among public-access online services the ECHO system is presented as an opportunity to obtain basic online searching skills. (pp. 577-587)
