Information Today, Inc. announces National Online Meeting will become InfoToday 2001 Conference and Exhibition

December 27, 2000, Medford, NJ — Information Today, Inc. (ITI) has announced the launch of InfoToday 2001, the global conference and exhibition on electronic information and knowledge management. InfoToday 2001 will take the place of the National Online Meeting and will include expanded coverage of the electronic information industry as well as new coverage of the emerging field of knowledge management. The dates of the conference and exhibition, which will be held at the NewYork Hilton & Towers, are May 15-17, 2001.

For 22 years, the National Online Meeting has held the position as the conference and exhibition showcasing the latest developments in the online industry. Now it will become a part of a larger event that will feature three simultaneous conferences: National Online 2001, KnowledgeNets 2001, and E-Libraries 2001. These conferences are designed to stand alone, but they are also meant to highlight the common interests of those involved in these three fields. With something of interest for all levels and job functions, this event is a must for anyone concerned with both information and knowledge, their distribution, and their value in decision making.

Tom Hogan, president of Information Today, Inc., said, “The reason for the change is simple. As organizations continue to adapt to modern business practices, they are trying to answer their information needs on all levels. That means sharing information and knowledge for the benefit of the entire enterprise. Over the past few years, as knowledge management has risen from theory to practice, it has become apparent that there is much in common between the information professional community that has traditionally supported this conference and the knowledge management community that we have come to know better through our new KMWorld magazine and conference. It is our intention to look for opportunities for convergence of the two communities of interest, and our New York event was the logical place to begin.” 

National Online 2001 will continue its focus on information content as well as on information delivery technologies. In 2001 it will bring together a stimulating blend of information industry innovators and practitioners from around the world. 

KnowledgeNets 2001 will provide complete coverage of knowledge management and its applications within today’s organization. It will include practical programs and case studies on the theories, practices, processes, tools, and solutions for enterprise knowledge networks.

E-Libraries 2001 will cater to the needs of library managers and technology specialists and will cover the latest developments in library systems and services. This conference focuses specifically on the distribution and management of information through corporate, academic, and public libraries and information centers.

Each day, InfoToday 2001 will offer attendees a choice of sessions on a variety of topics within the three concurrent conferences. This will amount to six simultaneous tracks during the main conference days. Also included are keynotes by industry leaders, pre- and post-conference seminars, the Electronic Publishing seminar, and more. InfoToday 2001 has been designed to provide the most comprehensive professional education opportunity available in the world of electronic information and knowledge management.

In the InfoToday 2001 exhibit hall, over 100 exhibiting companies will be displaying the latest in search engines, online and Internet databases, KM products and services, and much more. The exhibit hall will also include a presentation theater that will house free workshops, hands-on “cybertours,” and complimentary receptions, all intended to give visitors the richest learning and networking experience possible.

InfoToday 2001 is sponsored by Information Today, Inc., the publisher of KMWorldInformation TodaySearcherComputers in LibrariesLink-Up  and MultiMedia Schools.  For more information contact Information Today, Inc., at 800-300-9868 (outside the U.S. call 609-654-6266), e-mail, or visit
