Information Highway Benefits Businesses

The opinion-page article ``Info-Highway to Nowhere,'' March 30, states: ``Since 1990, hundreds of prestigious information centers, such as those at ... Digital Equipment Corporation, ... have closed or been drastically curtailed.'' This might surprise Digital employees, who are only seconds away from the resources of Digital Equipment Corporation's worldwide network.

The reality today, and in the future, is that library professionals at Digital provide better access to high-quality information services worldwide using the latest in electronic communications.

Advanced information technologies allow interconnected companies such as Digital to transcend time and space. Our librarians use their knowledge and skills in conjunction with the computer network, free from the archaic boundaries of proximity. Modern business libraries address the information needs of their companies with vastly improved electronic systems offering significant advancements in efficiency, convenience, and value over the location-bound library discussed in the article.
