The Library Machine


As automation permeates many new idea of life, its effect upon us becomes concomitantly more profound. Information processing and communications machines are finding their way into libraries. Here they alleviate the burden of storing and bringing out to the reader the accumulation of information which is becoming more prodigious in this era of specialization and threatening to inundate our already encumbered library system. As a way to expedite the selection of pertinent information for the reader, the machine scans 5,000 words per minute. It is the celerity of machine reading that makes automation in the library so valuable.
