Impact of New Information Resources: Multimedia and Networks


On-line Textbooks, Dial-a-Book, and Monographic Databases

Stanley R. Greenfield
Vice President, Ziff Communications

Stanley Greenfield presented three new projects from Ziff Communications. He discussed a project where on-line textbooks can be searched, downloaded and manipulated. These texts can contain hot links to glossaries, coursepack material and databases. He explained Dial-a-Book (a complement to Dial-a-Movie), a service for the sale and downloading of complete texts with appropriate viewers. And he discussed how Monographic databases, oft overlooked and latecomers to the digital bibliographic world, will be available soon.

Stanley R. Greenfield is Vice President of the Ziff Communications Company, parent of the Ziff-Davis Publishing Company (PC Magazine, PC Week). He has been responsible for more than half a dozen reference books, two of which were named "Outstanding Reference Book of the Year" by the American Library Association. From 1975-79, he was responsible for the acquisition of all scientific and technical materials from the United States on behalf of the People's Republic of China. Greenfield has an A.B. in Physics from Johns Hopkins, and an MBA with distinction from the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration. He has initiated and taught a course on the information industry at the Publishing Center of NYU.
