The Fifth Anniversary International Conference "Crimea 98" is
held under the aegis of IFLA

Main organizer of the Conference:
- Russian National Public Library for Science and Technology,
 Moscow, Russia

The Fifth International Conference will again be held in Sudak, a
beautiful and tranquil locale on the Crimean Black Sea coast. The
history of Sudak dates to antiquity. It is a small Crimean town of
unfailing charm, surrounded by fantastic mountains crowned with
picturesque ruins of the medieval Genoese fortress. The Conference
venue, Sudak Holiday Home, is a complex of seven modern buildings
in a garden setting. The adjacent beach, some two kilometers long,
might well be the best in Crimea. The beach, restaurants, and shops
are within easy walking distance from the Sudak Holiday Home.
During the "Crimea 98", Sudak Holiday Home will accommodate only
the participants in the Conference. Brief reports on Crimea'97
appeared in _American Libraries_, August, 1997, p.30, and in _College
& Research Libraries News_, September, 1997, pp. 565-566.

of abstracts is March 1, 1998.
