Pearson, Debra, Ed.
The papers presented at this conference challenged participants to become an integral part of the planning necessary to keep libraries on the cutting edge of technological advances. Academic libraries are admonished to reposition themselves to deliver both new and traditional services, or face the prospect of being preempted by other agencies. The selected paper of the conference, "Nebraska Online," explains the electronic information service developed by the Library Commission to support economic development; other papers address a wide variety of issues pertaining to technology. The 10 papers included in the collection are: (1) "How To Plan a LAN?" (Mel Bohn and Robert S. Runyon); (2) "Multimedia: Trends and Implications for Libraries" (Burns Smith Davis); (3) "Teaching Technological Skills in the Library Setting: A Trainer's Perspective of the Process, the Challenge, and the Strategies" (Paul S. Hoffman); (4) "CELS: Electronic Library Services at the Creighton University Health Sciences Library" (Richard Jizba); (5) "Compensating for the Limitations of Subject Indexing in Bibliographic Databases" (Richard Jizba); (6) "Common Command Language" (Donna J. Jurena); (7) "Evaluation of Online Catalogs Accessible Through Internet" (Frank H. Sun); (8) "A Fulbright? For Librarians?!?" (Thomas A. Tollman); (9) "Nebraska Online: The Nebraska Development Information Partnership" (Vern Buis, Mary Jo Ryan, and Rob Wagner); and (10) "The Virtual Library: Illusion or Reality?" (Kate Wakefield). Most of the papers contain bibliographies, some of which are extensive. (KRN)
