learn about all aspects of library technology at this year’s Computers
in Libraries conference and exhibition
April 6, 2001, Medford, NJ — Computers in Libraries 2001 (CIL 2001) took place March 14 – 16 at the Washington Hilton and Towers in downtown Washington, DC. Nearly 3,000 participants attended the comprehensive conference and exhibition that covered all aspects of library technology.
This year’s programming revolved around four simultaneous tracks—the IP Institute, the WebWizards’ Symposium, Systems, and iContent—and librarians came to learn all types of things, such as, how to get grants, how to improve their automation systems, how to manage content, how to perform better searches, how to design and manage Web pages, how to promote their services, and how to manage an intranet. However, while each track focused on something different during the three days of the conference, there were a few topics that came up again and again:
Other conference highlights included a Wednesday evening technology and knowledge forum that took a look at dead and emerging technologies. A pithy panel, led by columnist D. Scott Brandt, played on the theme of the popular TV show Survivor. Each panelist gave his opinion of which “dead” technology should be “voted off the island.”
In the exhibit hall two companies introduced new products, Antarcti.ca Systems, Inc. and Interface Software, Inc. Antarcti.ca’s Visual Net for Libraries software creates large-scale data maps by combining a navigation system with information-rich visuals. By creating a visual map of a library’s catalog, researchers are able to find what they need more quickly and with far less guesswork. Also premiering at CIL 2001 was Interface’s PC Reservation, a software package that manages access, use, and scheduling of public PCs.
