Re: ALA ALCTS Acquisition Section Program Announcement (Wendy Hope Riedel) Edward Bergin 07 Jun 2002 18:34 UTC

Will there be any minutes of this discussion group recorded?  I will not be
attending ALA in Atlanta.  But as a DRA site, we might find ourselves in a
situation where we need to migrate and would be addressing these same
issues.  Thanks for any help!

Best regards-
