International Federation of Library Associations, The Hague (Netherlands).
Papers on library journal cooperation, interlibrary lending, library services to minorities, and school library media centers, which were presented at the 1983 International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA) conference, include: (1) "The Co-operation between Editors of Library Journals in Socialist Countries," in which Wolfgang Korluss (East Germany) describes the development of cooperative agreements between and regularly scheduled conferences for editors of library journals in Socialist countries, and methods of cooperation, including exchange of journals, articles, and editors; (2) "The Impact of Technology on Interlibrary Lending," in which Susan K. Martin (United States) discusses traditional methods of interlibrary lending (ILL) and suggests that advances in online information retrieval, electronic publishing and delivery, telecopying, and optical disk technology will end the need for an ILL department but not the need for an ILL function; (3) "Final Report 1980-83 on the Activities of the [IFLA] Working Group on Library Services to Ethnic and Linguistic Minorities," in which M. Foster (United Kingdom) indicates different types of minorities and ways in which libraries can provide services for these people; and (4) "New Environment of Learning through School Library Media Centers in the Federal Republic of Germany," in which Andreas Papendieck (West Germany) describes the administration and services of German school libraries, including both independent libraries and those cooperating with public libraries.
