Network Bulletin No. 98-07

Date: January 30, 1998

Subject: National Conference of Librarians Serving
Blind and Physically Handicapped Individuals, 1998

Index term: Agenda and registration form

Planning for the 1998 National Conference of Librarians
Serving Blind and Physically Handicapped Individuals
has been completed in cooperation with the four
conference chairpersons.

The conference will convene in Burlington, Vermont, at
12:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 3, 1998, at the Radisson
Hotel Burlington. It will end at 12:30 p.m. on
Thursday, May 7. As mentioned in Network Bulletin 98-03,
the conference will be preceded by a full-day
workshop for reader advisors on Saturday, May 2.

To help us finalize arrangements, _please complete the
attached form and return it by fax or mail by March 1._

A room reservation card is enclosed. Room rates will
be $76, plus tax, for single or double occupancy.
_Please return the enclosed reservation card to the
hotel as soon as possible, but no later than April 3._
The hotel will continue to accept reservations on a
space-available basis after April 3, but not
necessarily at the conference rate. A brochure from
the hotel and information about Burlington are also
enclosed.

_Agenda_

The Sunday afternoon opening session will feature
presentations on new developments at NLS as well as
regional conference meetings. The program for Monday,
May 4, will consist of the conference's keynote address
followed by a discussion of subject code
standardization, and presentations on effective
coordination of staff and volunteers, the educational
reading services study being undertaken by NLS, the
Telecommunications Act of 1996, NISO and DAISY digital
talking book initiatives, and a review of library
services to the print-handicapped around the world. An
evening reception will be held at the Shelburne Museum,
a nationally celebrated collection of American folk
art, artifacts, and architecture.

The agenda for Tuesday morning, May 5, will include a
presentation on a project providing downloadable
software tutorials for print-handicapped readers and a
discussion of program evaluation measures. Dr. Elliot
Engel, whose presentation on Edgar Allan Poe was so
well received at the 1992 conference in Baltimore, will
conclude the morning session with a talk on _Myth Emily
Dickinson._ Conferees will then board buses and travel
to Montreal for afternoon presentations by the Canadian
National Institute for the Blind (CNIB). Current and
planned aspects of VISUNET, a vision of the "virtual
library" for the blind, will be addressed. VISUNET
incorporates such features as a central reference
service, an online public-access catalog with online
ordering capabilities, and access to daily newspapers
through the Internet and telephone, among others.
After dinner in Montreal, conferees will return by bus
to Burlington.

[indented text begins]

To enter Canada, conferees must present proof of
citizenship in one of two forms:

1. Passport, or
2. Birth certificate accompanied by a second form of
identification such as a driver's license with
photograph.

Driver's licenses alone are not acceptable.

[indented text ends]

A national automation conference -- including updates
on the different circulation systems used in the
network, user group meetings, discussions of a variety
of Internet-related issues, and updates on NLS
automation initiatives -- will be held on Wednesday,
May 6.

The conference will end on Thursday, May 7, with
presentations on braille-related outreach efforts,
library services for children, health issues for staff
handling books and machines, and conference reports.
The conference will officially close at 12:30 p.m. An
optional tour to the regional library in Montpelier,
approximately 45 minutes away, will be available in the
afternoon.

A more detailed agenda will be sent in March. Make
your plans now to attend. Your participation and that
of appropriate staff will make the 1998 conference a
success.
