Bulletin 99-05 and input from the regional conferences in
1999, the National Conference will be preceded by two half-
day workshops.  "Outreach and Awareness" will be 8:30 a.m. -
11:30 a.m. and "Machine Review:  How to Prepare for the Next
Audit" will be 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.  These will be held on
Saturday, April 29.

Room rates are $105, plus $10.55 room tax, for either single
or double occupancy. __ Please make your reservations with
the hotel as soon as possible but no later than March 31.
This may best be done by telephone.  The hotel's telephone

the hotel know you are attending the National Conference of
Librarians Serving Blind and Physically Handicapped
Individuals.  The hotel will continue to accept reservations
on a space-available basis after March 31, but it will not

__Agenda__

The Sunday afternoon opening session will feature
presentations on new developments at NLS followed by
regional conference meetings.  The Herman H. B. Meyer
Memorial Literary Club and Declamatory Society reception
will be held at 6 p.m.


Monday, May 1, will consist of the conference's keynote
address and a panel discussion on partnering with public
libraries to serve patrons who cannot use standard print,
presentations on trends in aging in the coming century,
volunteer repair programs, Web-Braille, the forthcoming
digital talking book, and the DAISY project.  An evening
reception will be held on the Queen Mary.  A ship's officer
will meet you,  greet you, and present a forty-five minute
multi-media show.  This historic ocean liner and World War
II troopship will provide a unique setting for a memorable
evening afloat.

Tuesday morning, May 2, presentations will include a
discussion on adaptive technologies -- developments that may
shape talking-book services in the next decade -- and
readings by a California poet.  Conferees will then travel
to the Braille Institute of America (BIA) for lunch,
afternoon tours, and presentations    by the BIA staff.   In
the late afternoon, conferees will visit The John Paul Getty
Museum for a millennium extravaganza sponsored by the BIA.

The National Automation Conference will be held on
Wednesday, May 3.  It will include updates on various
circulation systems used in the network, user-group
meetings, discussions of automation potpourri, and updates
on NLS automation initiatives.

The conference will conclude on Thursday, May 4, with
presentations on Native Americans and NLS's  "Take a Talking
Book" campaign, asteroid "Braille," digital audio production
methods, the machine audit process, and conference reports.
An optional tour to the BIA,  Orange County Branch Library,
and Orange County Regional Center (approximately forty-five
minutes away) will be available in the afternoon.

A detailed agenda will be sent in March.  Please make your
plans now to attend.  Your participation will help make our
2000 conference a success.
