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.

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.
