SPIDERS OR FLIES: THE MANAGEMENT OF ELECTRONIC INFORMATION IN
LIBRARIES

A two-day seminar organised on behalf of the National Acquisitions
Group and United Kingdom Serials Group by Mary Morley and Hazel Woodward at
Eynsham Hall, Witney, Oxfordshire

7 and 8 May 1997

`Spiders or flies' will concentrate on the issues, policies and practices
involved in making information in electronic form available to users in all
types of libraries, with papers covering such strategic issues as user
interfaces; networks; hardware and infrastructure; economic policies; copyright
and training.

The programme will give senior managers in the academic, commercial and public
library environments, as well as publishers and electronic information
providers, access to informed thinking on the various aspects of this
rapidly-changing area. It will also offer an ideal opportunity for delegates
to update their knowledge through participation in exchange of experience
discussions with professional colleagues. The seminar is the third joint
initiative of the two major professional interest groups NAG and UKSG, and
follows the success of `Taming the electronic jungle' and `Endangered species?'
