Nebraska Information Partnerships, A Report to Nebraskans. Nebraska Conference on Library and Information Services (Omaha, Nebraska, February 24-26, 1991).
Nebraska Library Commission, Lincoln.
This report begins by describing the activities of the members of the Nebraska Information Partnerships Planning Committee as they planned for the state conference, including a Delphi survey that was conducted to identify key issues and direction for discussion at the conference, and the selection of 100 delegates. Conference activities and presentations are then briefly described together with information technology exhibits that featured online catalogs, the Nebraska state database NEON, CD-ROM databases, and full-text online databases. The eight delegates and four alternates elected to attend the White House Conference on Library and Information Services in July are also named. Background information on the Nebraska Information Partnerships initiative includes an outline of the assumptions that undergird Nebraska's recommendations and introduces reports on the three main themes of the conference: (1) Partnerships for Democracy; (2) Partnerships for Productivity; and (3) Partnerships for Information Literacy. Each of these reports includes a brief discussion of the theme, a list of the questions guiding small group discussions, and recommendations proposed by the participants. Three additional general recommendations and lists of the planning committee members and the delegates--including library and information professionals, active library supporters, government officials, the general public, and honorary delegates--conclude the report. A list of six related publications is also provided. (BBM)
