Social Information Resource Centre – Faculty of Social Work

I am responsible for developing a social information resource centre for the Faculty of Social Work. The centre combines the print resources of the reading room, the video materials of our in-house A-V department, and the electronic resources of our computer lab. The model guiding our technical development is the Integrated Work Station (c) developed by Donald Forgie at the Advanced Communicating Lab in 1984.

Using it, we developed computer work stations in support of centre management and student use. Currently, we are working on one for social policy researchers. Before becoming consumed by information technology and its implications, my career started in 1969 as a community organizer working in various disadvantaged neighbourhoods in both Canada and the U.S. [posting to humanist discussion list]
