A Preconference Institute on Library Automation, sponsored by ALA’s Information Science and Automation Division, will be held June 22-24 in San Francisco’s Civic Auditorium, to review the state-of-the-art of library automation today and the prospects for the future. Individual sessions will concentrate on particular areas of library automation, identifying the general types of systems which are now operating in each area and discussing particular systems as examples or exceptions. Speakers scheduled for such sessions include Joseph Becker, Wesley Simonton, Barbara Markuson, Henriette Avram, C. D. Gull, Charles Bourne, Bruce Stewart, Kelley Cartwright, and Connie Dunlap. The Institute will also feature a half day’s instruction in library systems analysis by Edward Chapman and Paul St. Pierre, for which a manual of systems analysis will be furnished free to each registrant. Exhibits by data processing equipment manufacturers will demonstrate actual library systems or provide “hands-on” experience for Institute attendees.

The registration fee is $20, and registration is limited to 900. For further information, write to Preconference Institute on Library Automation, American Library Association, 50 East Huron Street, Chicago, Illinois 60611. Deadline for registrations is June 5.
