More Programs Than Ever!
We are pleased to present the 13th annual Computers in Libraries
the most comprehensive North American conference and exhibition on
all aspects of library technology. Although the technology and tools
available to libraries has certainly changed over the years, the
excellent quality and range of both topics and speakers at Computers
in Libraries remains the same.

Computers in Libraries '98 caters to all interests and all levels
of knowledge. It brings more than 100 dynamic speakers to the four
simultaneous tracks during the conference, plus pre- and
post-conference workshops. In addition, this year we introduce,
Computers in School Libraries '98, a two-day track running Sunday,
March 1 through Monday, March 2, allowing more in-depth coverage of
technology and its impact on the practices and practical concerns of
librarians and school library media specialists in the K-12 education
Themes for this year's conference continue to focus on key issues
for libraries and information services as they utilize technology to
transform their services and organizations into digital or virtual
libraries. Programs cover digitizing resources, virtualizing services,
Internet tools and techniques, training and instruction, library
systems, Internet and Web management, skills and strategies for the
millennium, networked and Web-based information delivery, and trends
and impacts for the future. New tracks this year delve into managing
organizational knowledge and knowledge management as well as the
changing issues and concerns in public and government libraries. Many
sessions in this year's conference present leading edge applications
and case studies; they include practical ideas that allow you to
transfer proven strategies to your library and information service.
