Who needs hurricanes when you work in the information industry?

Computers in Libraries 2000 helps information professionals deal with the hurricane of change in the information and information technology industries. It caters to all interests and all levels of knowledge. This year, a new location but the same great program! CIL 2000 brings more than 100 dynamic speakers to the four simultaneous tracks during the conference, plus pre and post conference workshops, as well as our exciting and fun Wednesday evening program. Once again, we are featuring a 2-day conference within a conference, Computers in School Libraries 2000, Friday and Saturday, March 17 & 18, which provides more in-depth coverage of technology and its impact on the practices and practical concerns of librarians, teachers, and school library media specialists in the K-12 education system.

Conference themes concentrate on key issues for information professionals in libraries, developing information services and Web-based products, and searching or guiding content users. Many intranet librarians and Webwizards share their experience. Representatives of national libraries present their best practices while other speakers present programs on search engines, digitizing resources, content strategies, public libraries, e-resources, virtual services, integrating systems and technology, knowledge management, training, instruction and learning, as well as trends for the future. Sessions present leading edge applications and case studies, including practical ideas and solutions that allow you to transfer proven strategies to your library and information service.
