    Thank you for your interest.  As for what's to be made available
afterwards there are several possibilities.  For one, the CSSC always has
minutes of its meetings, which are generally very thorough and which
appear on the committee's ALCTS web site.  Problem is it takes a long
time for ALCTS to get around mounting them.  (We still don't have our
minutes from 2000 on!)  However, in view of the importance of this
program (and our Midwinter meeting, which had the topic of implementing
integrating resources) I am going to ask ALCTS to expedite our program
minutes.  (All the same it probably won't be until the end of the summer
when they will be ready.)
    The other possibility is that some of the speakers may make copies of
their Power Point presentations available for anyone interested.  Along
with that they all should have corresponding handouts.  You may want to
try to get someone come by to pick them up for you or something.
    All the same I am keeping a list of anyone who asks me about this
matter.  When I have something more definite after the conference (be it
the posted minutes, copies of the minutes specially made, how to get
copies of the individual presentations, etc.) I will notify all of you.
This should be some time in July.
    That's the best I can say for now.
