Telecommunications and Networking Video Conference
The Alliance of Library Service Networks is pleased to sponsor an interactive video conference entitled
"Telecommunications & Networking Technology" on March 19, 1998 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m, Eastern Standard
The two-hour video conference will update librarians on the latest telecommunication and networking
terminology and concepts. Presenters from the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries, the Carnegie Library of
Pittsburgh, and the Brewton (Alabama) Public Library will discuss how they use the latest technologies in their
libraries. Following each presentation, a technology expert will define technical terms and describe the
technology concepts illustrated in each of the case studies. The viewing audience will also contribute to the
discussion by phone or by fax.
The video conference is designed for administrators, librarians, and other staff positions responsible for
technology planning and implementation.
Although FEDLINK is a partner of the Alliance of Library Service Networks, we will not be sponsoring a metro
Washington. D.C. downlink site as FLICC is presenting its fifteenth annual policy forum on the same day.
FEDLINK will have videotape copies of the video conference available after the airing on March 19, 1998.
