REMINDER!--FLICC Meeting Announcement 2001-4

Digital Library Discussion Series:
*Federal Library Consortium Development*

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.)
