Story); (5) "Library/Learning Resource Center of the Future" (Carmen Coracides and Laurita Moore); (6) "Planning for Information Technologies Facilities" (Jim Jacob and Jan Baltzer); (7) "Staying Current with Technological Change: Implications for Internal Training and Development" (Jamie Cavalier); (8) "Technology, Learning Theory, and Curriculum Restructuring (Integration of Learning Theory, Content, and Technology)" (Julie Bertch and Billie Hughes); and (9) "Where Are We Going and How Do We Get There" (Mark Montanus and Ron Bleed).
