Abstract:

The paper examines several ideas for information handling implemented with new technologies that suggest directions for future development. These are grouped under the topic headings handling large data banks, providing personalized information packages, providing information specialist services, and expanding man-machine interaction. Guides in planning information handling systems are discussed. A brief bibliography of readings is appended. The author suggests that systems be designed and modified from the point of view of making them interactive with other systems where possible to most fully exploit the investment required in money, manpower, and time.
