"Blazing the Trail: Electronic Serials from Acquisition to Access," will
be held April 16-17, at the Hilton Hotel in Portland, OR.
Sponsored by the Serials Section of the Association for Library
Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), a division of the American Library
Association, the institute begins at midday on Friday, April 16, and continues
all day on Saturday, April 17.  The registration deadline is April 2, 1999.

Librarians from all types and sizes of libraries need practical skills to
handle electronic serials as well as a conceptual understanding of the
theoretical implications of this rapidly changing format.  Following the
success of two previous institutes in Washington, DC and St. Louis, MO,
"Blazing the Trail Electronic:   Serials from Acquisition to Access" will
provide useful information about electronic serials for libraries of all sizes
and types.

Evan Reader, Director, Software & Electronic Information Resources,
Office of the Chancellor, California State University, will be the keynote
speaker.  Other speakers include Faye Chadwell, University of Oregon, with a
presentation on negotiating licenses for electronic serials titled "A
License to Kill . . . For;" Steve Shadle, University of Washington, with a talk
titled " A Square Peg in a Round Hole:  Practical Cataloging for
Electronic Serials."  Thomas Leonhardt, Oregon Institute of Technology, will be
closing the institute with �Wrap it to Go."  Also speaking will be Sharon
McKay, Faxon, George Machovec, CARL, and others still to be announced.
