Special Interest Group Meeting at IFLA `97

Wednesday 3 September,

Division 5 Room, 1530-1800

LIBRARIES ARE DEAD, LONG LIVE LIBRARIES:
The future for libraries in the electronic age

As the electronic era becomes a reality libraries will inevitably
have to undergo radical changes in the way they act, the services
they provide and in the way they think. The purpose of the IMPRIMATUR
Special Interest Group meeting is to consider possible scenarii of
the future, to identify the challenges that libraries are likely to
face, and to discuss how best to cope with the change.

The IMPRIMATUR Project is funded under the ESPRIT Programme of the
European Commission. The aim of the project is `to agree, within a
forum representing the widest range of information industry
organisations, a swift and practical response based on a mutual
understanding of the problems arising at the interface between IT,
telecommunication and IPRs: and to identify and develop a set of
tools to address those problems in the business, technological,
standards and legal areas.' The IFLA `97 SIG gives librarians a
chance to actively participate in this consensus building process and
to ensure that their views are made known to other actors in the
information industry.

Unfortunately we do have to limit the numbers of delegates at the
SIG. To reserve a place please contact Pauline Connolly, email
pauline.connolly@bl.uk, fax +44 1937 546478. There will also be
places available on the day on a first come first served basis.
