In this thought-provoking collection, first published in 1985, of the published proceedings of the library networking symposium, ‘From Our Past: Toward 2000’, network administrators describe the origin, history, and progress of their organizations. From these useful histories, important issues about the future of state, regional, and national networks arise.
