LAST CALL!!!!!!

CROSS POSTED TO SEVERAL LISTS.  PLEASE FORGIVE THE DUPLICATION

THROUGH THE ARCH: ELECTRONIC SERIALS FROM ACQUISITION TO ACCESS

Librarians from all types and sizes of libraries need the practical skills
to handle electronic serials as well as the conceptual understanding of
the theoretical implications of this rapidly changing format.

The Serials Section of the Association for Library Collections & Technical
Services (ALCTS) presents Through the Arch: Electronic Serials from
Acquisition to Access, an institute designed to meet these needs, on April
24-25, 1998, at the Regal Riverfront Hotel in St. Louis, MO. The institute
begins at midday on Friday, April 24, and continues all day on Saturday,
April 25. It is cosponsored by the Missouri Library Network Corporation.

The keynote presentation, focused breakout sessions, and a panel
discussion will address both the theoretical and the practical aspects of
electronic serials.
