• The students at Tarkio R-I have a new way of gathering information at their disposal. In the Tarkio High School Library, there is now a computer that is linked through a modem to Owens Library on the campus of Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri. To access Owens Library, one of its telephone numbers is dialed and is sent via the telephone lines. Owens Library has several lines for the 22 schools in this network that access the card catalog. The Tarkio school gets a charge similar to that of a telphone call each time the Owens Library is accessed via the computer.
