The computer is linked to a library—not a library of books but an electronic library where information on every subject is stored in computer memory banks.

The computer can tell you anything you want to know, and the information is always the very latest available.

At the library experts are constantly busy, feeding in the very latest information as they receive it. In theory one huge electronic library could serve the whole world.
