Forum Call

Newspapers, business magazines, TV commercials, and catalogs from
electronics retailors all
trumpet that our telecommunications environment is changing daily.
Advances in technology and
the telecom industry are moving us toward new devices, new content
options, and new
possibilities. Congress recognized that the stakes were enormous as it
crafted the
Telecommunication  Act of 1996. Now that the Act is being implemented,
business and industry
are moving and it is time to focus on how new technology will affect the
quality of the
information we rely on.

Join information professionals, government officials, telecom industry
leaders, and concerned
citizens at the Library of Congress for the 14th Annual FLICC Forum on
Federal Information
Policies, "Clear Signals? Telecommunications, Convergence, and the Quality
of Information."
The Forum's vision speaker will suggest what telecom technology has in
store for us. The
keynoter will explain how government plans to facilitate progress and
balance interests as it
implements new telecommunications law. A morning panel will consider
policy questions
associated with mandating universal service, operating in a global
environment, and changing the
way government and the public interact.

The afternoon session will focus on three areas where the quality of
information is challenged by
a networked world: diversity in information sources and content;
relevance; and continuity.

First, will information providers be forced to consolidate in order to be
successful in the vast
consumer markets promised by telecom and computer technology-thereby
leaving the public with
fewer independent sources of information? Will they race to deliver
consumer-friendly products
so that entertainment, advertising, and propaganda overwhelm the Internet?

Second, how will users find relevant information? Will filtering software
and other tools users
employ themselves be sufficient or will users turn to intermediaries for
assistance? Will
librarians need to become more involved in evaluating resources and doing
the users' research for
them?

Third, how will government agencies ensure effective management of
information resources?
Coordinating initiatives under a Chief Information Officer (CIO) may
improve the way an agency
acquires and implements information technology; will it also ensure the
quality of the
information the agency disseminates or of the information it uses? Or will
agencies focus on new
technologies at the expense of the content, analysis, organization, and
retention of the
information itself?
