16th Annual Computers in Libraries Provides the Vision, Strategy, and Direction needed for a Successful Information Odyssey

January 8, 2001, Medford, NJ — Information Today, Inc. (ITI) is pleased to announce that Computers in Libraries 2001 (CIL 2001), the most comprehensive North American conference and exhibition on all aspects of library technology, will take place March 14-16 at the Washington Hilton and Towers in Washington, DC.

Although the technology and tools available to libraries may have changed over the years, the excellent quality and range of both topics and speakers at Computers in Libraries 2001 remain the same. Full of examples of creative, working strategies, CIL 2001 brings together more than 100 speakers—experts, practitioners, and strategists all from the information industry—to four simultaneous program streams, including the IP Institute, the WebWizards’ Symposium, Systems, and iContent. A Wednesday evening session, pre- and post-conference workshops, and three keynotes are also available to CIL 2001 participants. 

In addition to the four simultaneous streams of programs, Computers in School Libraries 2001 provides in-depth coverage of technology and its impact on the practice and practical concerns of librarians, teachers, and school library media specialists within the K-12 educational system. Featuring a variety of experts in the field, this is a 2-day specialized conference (March 16-17, 2001) sponsored by MultiMedia Schools magazine. 

The CIL exhibition will feature over 100 booths, offering visitors a choice of products in all aspects of library technology, including Web-based products and services, integrated library and information systems, online services, CD-ROMs, document delivery services, Internet software tools, content suppliers, and more.
