30 March - 1 April 1998
Whether we are on the brink of a revolution in the way serials are produced and disseminated or simply witnessing a period of gentle transition and evolution no one can say. What UKSG can do, via the Annual Conference, is provide a forum for the discussion of the major issues surrounding this period of transition.
A full and varied programme has now been finalised, including sessions on: Consortia purchasing of electronic products, digital archiving, knowledge management and serials in public libraries. Some excellent speakers and industry-experts will be giving papers and running workshops, and the exhibition will include all of the organisations involved in the information chain.
The final component in all of this is you, the delegate. No matter how good the programme, it needs the interaction of all the stakeholders to make the Conference work. The formal and informal discussion and debate and the exchange of ideas and experiences are central to the success of the Annual Conference which attracts over 400 delegates.
