Have you been reading a lot about Digital Libraries in both the news and 
library literature?  What's the difference between digital, virtual, and 
electronic libraries?  Do you want your library to be on the cutting edge 
of technology?  You can learn about the impacts and issues involved in 
digital libraries as well as the tools and technologies being applied to 
develop these components of the digitized world.  The speakers will 
address technical considerations, planning, budgeting and implementation 
issues, and copyright.
