IOLS '98. Proceedings of the National Conference on Integrated Online Library Systems (13th, New York, New York, May 13-14, 1998).
Cibbarelli, Pamela R., Comp.; Nixon, Carol, Comp.
Integrated Online Library Systems (IOLS) focuses exclusively on the issues of planning and managing automated systems in libraries and information centers. The theme of the IOLS '98 annual meeting is "Embrace and Extend," and 18 papers were selected for presentation that provide insight into the current technologies being "embraced" in libraries. Librarians, library automation service providers, automation consultants, and library science faculty document their experiences with implementing the state of the art in library automation, describe their visions, and make suggestions for future directions. Papers are arranged alphabetically by speaker, and an index provides references to all speakers and topics.
