Welcome to UC Berkeley's School of Library and Information Studies Impact Mosaic Server! This server presents an amalgamation of the wide range of issues concerning the social impact of technology that has been a source of discussion and debate in a course titled "Impact of New Information Resources: Multimedia and Networks." In addition to information about the students themselves, Impact Mosaic includes the students' work in the form of papers and their participation in the class newsgroups. The course also consists of a lecture series of leading visionaries who address the fundamental issues raised in class, and other hopefully interesting and useful information that makes full use of Mosaic's unique interface.
This Web page was set up as a final project by the students of the Library and Information Studies 296A class at UC Berkeley, Spring 1994, taught by Professor Howard Besser. This class has included graduate and undergraduate students from a number of different departments. Parts of our server are still under construction, so please don't be too disappointed if some of the pages look yucky.
