You are cordially invited to attend the Spring 2004 meeting of the
Association of Information and Dissemination Centers (ASIDIC), to be
held March 21-23, 2004 at the Radisson Old Town Hotel in Alexandria, VA.
There is still time to register!  The meeting theme is Public/Private
Partnerships: Opportunities and Challenges.  The United States
Government is the world's largest publisher.  As the volume of
government information continues to grow exponentially and information
gathering, analysis, and dissemination increase the Government will be
looking to the private sector for help in making information activities
more effective and more efficient.
The meeting will be keynoted by Bruce James, Public Printer of the
United States.  Other sessions will address government information
producers, open access publishing, resellers of government information,
and access to government information. The meeting will conclude with a
panel of executives from major information organizations, who will
discuss the activities of their organizations and some of the current
issues and trends as they see them.
