OCLC Institute Teleconference- - Steering by Standards Librarians face the challenge of charting organizational directions that incorporate emerging knowledge-sharing standards. These complex new standards will significantly impact librarians and other information professionals, their institutions, budgets, staffs, systems, and work flows. Gaining practical insights into these global initiatives will help library leaders decide more quickly and effectively how to respond locally. To support this effort, FLICC/FEDLINK is sponsoring a Washington, D.C. area viewing of the OCLC Institute's series of three satellite video conferences at the National Science Foundation (NSF) at 4200 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, Virginia. Registrants can choose to attend one session or all three. (See registration and location information below.)
