ALA Midwinter Meeting Announcement

ALCTS Acquisitions Section, Acquisitions Librarians/Vendors of Library
Materials Discussion Group

Sunday, February 16, 1997
8:30-10:30 a.m.
Washington Vista, Vista Ballroom C

VIRTUAL ACQUISITIONS: BLESSING OR BURDEN - Acquiring library materials in
electronic formats.  Part I: The Issues.

Libraries, vendors and publishers are facing major changes and additional
responsibilities and challenges with the advent of electronic publishing.
 Representatives from a vendor (Blackwell's Periodicals) and a publisher
(Elsevier) will kick-off the meeting by identifying a number of issues
faced by those organizations when dealing with the provision of materials
in electronic formats.

Then it's YOUR turn!  We'll form small discussion groups to identify the
many issues being faced by acquisitions/serials librarians and their
staff when dealing with these materials in addition to their regular
workloads.  We'll also be thinking about how vendors, publishers and
libraries can all be of help to each other.  At the end of the meeting,
we'll come together to compile our lists of issues.   [Stay tuned to ALA
Annual, when we'll try to come up with some solutions as well...]
