Millennial Online Information: the 1999 London Exhibit Hall
by Marydee Ojala

Reports on the annual Online Information Conference & Exhibition held in London. Says that London is in the middle of Millennium fever, but not much of it carried over into the Exhibition Hall. Mentions several of the exhibits such as the H.W. Wilson and Reed-Elsevier stands, along with others. Observes that changes in ownership have taken many companies' headquarters outside the U.S. Says a large banner proclaiming the purchase of Chadwyck-Healey by the U.S. company Bell & Howell Information and Learning, seemed to indicate an exception to this pattern. Highlights European and international business and says that it is necessary to go to Europe to know what is going on with European information. Concludes that some are ready for the challenge of the Millennium and some are not. Hopes that the millennium of online will result in a world that values knowledge, analysis, and thoughtfulness. Includes four screen displays and a sidebar.
