The annual conference of the Federal Depository Library Program is rapidly approaching. If you have in interest in Government information or work at a depository library, you may want to consider attending. The conference is Oct. 15-18 at the Doubletree Hotel in Crystal City (Arlington) Va. Registration is free. I will be attending as a member of the Depository Library Council; it would be great to see a good Federal library turnout at this conference.
There will be daily sessions on the State Forecast Study project as well as many interesting speakers.
