Computers in Libraries '96
Conference Overview

We are pleased to present the 11th annual Computers in Libraries -- the most comprehensive North American conference and exhibition on all aspects of library technology. Although the technology and tools available to libraries have certainly changed over the years, the excellent quality and range of both topics and speakers at Computers in Libraries remains the same.

Over 50 Programs for one low price
With over 100 speakers participating in three simultaneous tracks, plus workshops, Computers in Libraries caters to all interests and all levels of knowledge.
Tracks focusing on the Internet and the World Wide Web provide practical examples of how this new technology is being integrated into library platforms. Case studies and creative applications of multimedia, CD-ROMs, information delivery, and library systems provide many ideas to employ in your own organization.
Those libraries which are now utilizing new technologies are transforming their services and organizations and becoming digital libraries or virtual libraries. While sessions on these applications are leading edge, they are practical in their presentation and will allow you to transfer proven strategies to your library or information service. Some view this electrifying environment as one that may be moving "too fast," and a series of sessions focuses on this concept as it affects libraries, customers, the academic world and society.
It has been said that education is the "killer application" of networking and technology. Our Education & Technology track looks at the use of technology in schools and learning environments.
