This message is sent to several lists and I apologise for any cross-
NEW TRICKS 2: eLib and Telematics: Projects and Partnerships
Bournemouth University Library & Information Services Conference
(BULISC '97) 27-29 August 1997.

The eLib Programme, in the UK, and the Telematics Applications
covering the whole of the EU, are developing independently applications
that will have a major impact on libraries in the near future. This
conference will for the first time bring together projects in key areas
of interest, to allow both potential users and the project workers
themselves to compare aims, objectives and results thus far.

The Conference
* Brings you keynote speakers from funding organisations with key
roles in developing the electronic library.
* Offers a unique opportunity to hear reports on progress in key
sectors in both eLib and Telematics Programmes.
* Allows 8 eLib and 8 Telematics projects to give demonstrations
during presentations and in a demonstration suite.
* Presents formal reports drawing together results from and
to the presentations by projects.
* Stages a major debate on the electronic library and outcomes of
the programmes.
* Offers an evening's sail along the beautiful Dorset coast.

The Conference is aimed at senior managers and those with more technical
interests; however all with an interest in the electronic library,
including library school staff, students and researchers, will benefit
from attending.

While the emphasis is European, the developments discussed will be of
interest to the wider international audience.

Bournemouth is a premier holiday resort and international conference
centre, with excellent shopping and entertainment facilities. The town
is just 100 miles from London and its airports, well served by the main
road and rail networks. Onward travel to IFLA '97 in Copenhagen is
easily arranged.

Bournemouth University is one of the newer universities, occupying an
attractive campus of modern, easily accessible buildings. Residential
accommodation is provided in the Student Village, in new purpose-built
houses comprising single study-bedrooms and common living areas.
