More Programs--Over 70--for One Low PriceWith over 100 dynamic speakers participating in four simultaneous tracks, plus workshops, Computers in Libraries caters to all interests and all levels of knowledge.
Tracks focusing on the Internet and World Wide Web provide practical examples of how this new technology is being integrated into library platforms. Case studies and creative applications of information delivery, library systems, intranets, web publishing, multimedia and CD-ROMs, provide many ideas to employ in your own organization.
Those libraries and information services now utilizing new technologies are transforming their services and organizations and becoming digital libraries or virtual libraries. While sessions on these applications are leading edge, they are practical in the ir presentation and allow you to transfer proven strategies to your library and information service. The area of resource sharing is highlighted this year as libraries are entering into cooperative alliances at an unprecedented rate. We also focus on school libraries--their use of technology in learning environments and t heir efforts to integrate it into their curriculums.
New this year is our emphasis on the impact of information technologies on library professionals, our roles, responsibilities and careers. Sessions will focus on emerging career paths and competency requirements as well as some of the new roles, such as webmasters and knowledge navigators.
