Call for Proposals
Apple Computer wants to help librarians develop the library of tomorrow.
How can Apple products help you to function more efficiently and
improve service for those who use your libraries? How can technology
keep the library as the focal point in the communities that you serve?
The corporate library of Apple Computer Inc. is soliciting proposals for
library research projects and experiments in 1989 using Apple
technology. Projects may involve automation of inter-library loan,
telefacimile, connectivity with other hardware, collaborative work
groups,expert systems,inter-active catalogs, hypertext and hypermedia,
public access computing, electronic publishing, cooperation with
computing centers and data processing departments, research into library
and information policy issues, computer-aided instruction, childrens'
programs, scanning technologies, telecommunications, or other library
automation. Apple Computer will donate a limited amount of equipment
for a small number of ALOT projects in the United States and overseas
in 1989 and will solicit proposals for other ALOT sites at a later date.
The proposal should include a description of the project, brief information
about your library or library system, primary contacts(s), and estimated
duration. Please include a tentative list of equipment, software, and
support needed. Written proposals should not exceed two pages, single
spaced, using typefaces at least 10 pt. in size. Proposals may be submitted
electronically as text files and should not exceed 8 Kbytes.
Proposals are due by January 15, 1989. Applicants will be informed about
the initial ALOT sites by February 15, 1989. Those selected will be
expected to maintain electronic communications and share questions and
findings with other participants and participate in the first ALOT
