Dear list members,

A few weeks ago I posted a message on this list wich contained a few
questions about 'the future position of libraries towards copyright'.
I recieved a few messages wich helped me in the right direction.
But I still have a few questions left.

'The future position of libaries towards copyright'
These days there is a lot said and written about this topic. With the
coming of Internet, online databases and CD-ROM's the whole idea of
libraries being a provider of (free) information is changing. The
copyright problems are a big issue these day, and so it did raise a
few questions to me.

Some of the questions I would like an answer to are:
* What is the current position of libraries towards copyright?
This goes for Holland, but also for other country's.
* What kind of influence do new technologies like Internet, online
databases and CD-ROM's have on libraries and it's copyright
position?
* Do libraries and publishers need to work closer together in the
near future? or will they become each other enemy's?
* What will the future hold for libraries and their position towards
copyright?

What I am looking for are personal thoughts ans answers on these
questions from people how work as librarians, publishers and so on.
Any one with an opion on these matters is welcome!
It would be great help to read your comment or suggestions on these
questions.

Forgive me for any mistakes in the spelling, as English isn't my
native language.

You can mail me directly or through this list.
Many thanks in advance,
