Proceedings of the Federal Library Committee Meetings, December 16, 1970 and April 28, 1971 on Implications to the Federal Library Community of the Airlie Conference on Interlibrary Communications and Information Networks, September 28--October 2, 1970.
Federal Library Committee, Washington, DC.; ERIC Clearinghouse on Library and Information Sciences, Washington, DC.
The Federal library community has felt an increasing concern about the role that Federal libraries will play in library and information network systems. Because of this concern, the Federal Library Committee (FLC) called a meeting at the Library of Congress on December 16, 1970 to discuss the implications for Federal libraries of the Conference on Interlibrary Communications and Information Networks (CICIN) which had been held at the Airlie Conference Center, Warrenton, Va., from September 28 through October 2, 1970. Summaries of the Working Groups' recommendations, along with recollections of detailed discussions and working problems which were encountered in developing these recommendations were presented at this meeting. Participants and the Conference Working Groups represented are listed. The summary conclusions and recommendations of that meeting were studied by FLC's Task Force on Automation and those deemed to be most interest and importance to the Federal library community were presented to FLC during its April 28 meeting. FLC Task Forces will study these recommendations for determination of future projects and programs. (AB)
