FLICC Meeting Announcement MA 98-23

Database Users Group Meetings

Databases are a staple information service for federal libraries
and information centers but the offerings and services continue to
change. Learn new ways to maximize your usage of these services
and meet the vendors of these products. Major database providers
Dialog, Lexis-Nexis, and Westlaw will join FEDLINK program
specialists and LC/FEDLINK contracting officers to explore:

* new web products, databases, and services for government users,
* ways to use the services more effectively and efficiently,
* tips on getting more for your online dollar,
* new flexibility in FEDLINK's BOAs for customer-specific
  offerings , and
* procedures designed to meet your agency's needs.

Following each vendor presentation will be a Question and Answer
Session and an opportunity to exchange ideas with other users.
Invite an end user(s) from your agency to join you and add their
direct input to the discussion. Your feedback will help the
vendors serve federal customers more effectively, and ensure that
the FEDLINK staff identify the issues and services you need as
they enter FY99 contract negotiations with these vendors. Register
now to attend one or all of these User Groups!
