International Association of Marine Science Libraries and Information Centers (IAMSLIC) conferences provide a format for libraries and information specialists to discuss common interests and concerns so that services and information can be made available to scientists, administrators, engineers, educators and students in the discipline of marine science. The theme of the 1984 conference, "The Year of the Oceans," was addressed in the keynote speech by John Byrne. Presented papers focused on such topics as: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's role in user communications; document delivery in small information centers; data management systems applied to technical reports; journal use; the art of information management; networking and librarianship in Denmark; the ship's library; computer bibliographic searching; microcomputer software; micros in libraries; treaties and marine pollution control; and fisheries information activities.
