The complexity of modern life leads to increasing dependence on processed information on the part of both individuals and organizations. As knowledge expands, so does the need to know, as does the idea of equal opportunity of access to information. The "information society" imposes new demands on librarians, and rapid technological advances provide new tools for meeting these demands. Librarians in Hawaii and the Pacific Rim countries are vitally interested in keeping up with new developments and gaining new skills.
The program seeks to meet this demand by providing new courses, special lectures, workshops, seminars, and institutes. These continuing education opportunities are announced as they become available. Some past course offerings include:
- Data Communications
- Business Information Resources
- Bibliographic Database Design
- CD-ROM Storage and Retrieval
- Basic Sources of Legal Information
