Hello, all.

I'm sending you this email for two reasons.  First, it outlines the issues
that OCLC Users' Council will be taking up at the fall meeting from
October 4-6, 1998. If you have any thoughts on these issues, please
communicate them to me or to Arlene by COB on September 29 so that we may
make your opinions known to OCLC.

Secondly, the message contains sources of excellent information about
digital libraries which you might find useful.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Marcia Talley

 ========================================================================

The topic for the next OCLC Users' Council meeting is "Digital Libraries:
Looking at the Future of the Information Industry."  The speakers promise
to engage us in considering how libraries, networks, and OCLC can
accomplish the transition to a digital library.  Specifically, we will
address the following key questions:

* What are the trends/expected scenarios in the computing, political, and
publishing environments that will affect further development of the
digital library?

* What are the likely impacts in the next five years of these changes on
libraries and OCLC?

* What are the opportunities for and barriers to the deployment of the
digital library?

* How can libraries, networks, and OCLC work together to develop the
digital library?
