The Program Session of the April 1984 meeting of the Library of Congress Network Advisory Committee (NAC) was devoted to discussion of electronic information delivery systems. Recent developments in six areas were covered: (1) electronic manuscript generation and transmission; (2) online full-text searching and retrieval; (3) online database production and distribution; (4) nontraditional sources of information; (5) trends in equipment and equipment applications related to electronic information; and (6) the changing interactions between libraries and library users being brought about by emerging information delivery systems. Seven invited speakers presented reports: "The Publishing Environment: The Electronic Manuscript Project" (Anne Mehringer); "The Publishing Environment: Online Full Text--Biomedical" (Eleanor Y. Goodchild); "The Publishing Environment: Online Full Text--Legal" (William H. Lindberg); "The Abstracting and Indexing Services Environment: Current Trends/New Directions" (Ronald L.
