New list

From: Walter Henry <whenry>
Date: Saturday, October 7, 1989
PACS-L is a new electronic forum and despite the focus on libraries is
likely to be at least as interesting to museum people. The following is
from the list description:

The Public-Access Computer Systems Forum is a computer conference about
all types of computer systems that libraries make available to their
patrons. These include catalog systems (e.g., online catalogs and public
use of bibliographic utilities), CD-ROM databases, computer-assisted
instruction programs, end-user search services (e.g., Knowledge Index),
expert systems, hypermedia programs, local multi-user database systems
(e.g., BRS/Search), microcomputer facilities, and other public computer
systems. The conference was established in June 1989.

There is also an electronic magazine that goes with the list (anyone
subscribing to the list will get the magazine automatically). The latter
is a venue for somewhat longer or more formal discussions of the same
sorts of topics.
