Bixby, Pamela, Ed.
Presentations on the changing nature of information services in research libraries in the context of advanced technology are combined with business meeting minutes in this report. The report begins with copies of three papers presented as part of a panel discussion on the program theme together with transcripts of accompanying remarks/discussion. The papers are: (1) "Information Services in the '90s: Competition or Cooperation?" (Robert Weber); (2) "Information Services and the Library: Demands, Resources, and Values for the Future" (Patricia Swanson); and (3) "Roles and Actions for ARL" (Clifford Lynch). Also included are brief reports on group discussions of concerns relating to information needs in science and technology by James Green, Elmer Smith, Robert Zich, and Martin Cummings. An update on serials pricing and library responses to this by Ann Okerson is then presented. Business meeting coverage includes a report of membership dues and reports from the Statistics Committee, the Executive Director, ARL President, and the ARL President-Elect. Concluding these minutes are a report on association activities (May-October 1990); a list of the attending participants; and lists of the officers and members of the Board of Directors, committees, task forces, and member associations of the ARL.
