FLICC Meeting Announcement 2001-4 (Cross posted on several listservs.
Please excuse the duplication.)

Digital Library Discussion Series:  "Federal Library Consortium

Many federal libraries have banded together to enjoy volume discounts
and special terms for their database and e-journal purchases to expand
their electronic services and save their agencies thousands of
dollars.  With so many  opportunities available, federal librarians
need to know where the latest and best option are.

Join Moderator Jane Sessa of the Department of Commerce Library and
guest speakers Rod Atkinson, Congressional Research Service, Library
of Congress, and representatives from NASA and FEDLINK, who have all
been active in forming federal library consortium agreements.  Learn
how to find and use the best offers for your library and share your
experiences with your colleagues.

(To focus the discussion on your areas of interest, please submit
your questions and comments to the FLICC Information Technology
Working Group's(ITWG)Web Bulletin Board
 The Web Bulletin Board is similar to a listserv discussion, only
messages and responses are posted to the Web, not distributed via
email. Your questions and comments will be discussed online by other
federal librarians and members of the ITWG and presented at the live
discussion.  Registration for the Web Bulletin Board is open to anyone
with email, it's free, and it's instantaneous. You can post your
messages as often as you like, or just read the discussions others
have posted.)
