In the News

Join ACRL in Nashville, April 11–14, 1997, for its 8th National Conference. An exciting and thought-provoking array of programming has been scheduled to equip you with the tools you need to enhance your skills and improve your library’s services.

Learn how your colleagues are creating and managing electronic collections. Increase your understanding of the future of academic libraries and see how you can have a role in shaping that future. And take home an action plan from the interactive closing session, “Creating Our Futures: Scenarios for the Future.”

Spend some time reviewing the diverse selection of papers, panels, roundtables, and poster sessions described in this issue (pages C1–C24). ACRL members were automatically mailed the full preliminary program. You may also review the program on ACRL’s homepage at http:// (select National Conference) or request a print copy by contacting Darlena Davis at (800) 545-2433 ext. 2519 or e-mail: Selected papers will also be posted on the Web prior to the conference.

Volunteers are needed to assist with meeting arrangements onsite and to report on conference programs for C&RL News. Details are given on page C–5. Please contact us if you are registered for the conference and would like to help out.

Also in this issue, our Internet series continues with a look at ready reference resources prepared by Jeff Rosen and Carl E. Snow (page 14). And Lynn Trojahn and Linda K. Lewis share how they raise money for libraries through an affinity credit card program (page 10).

Many thanks to Kit Dusky for preparing the index to the 1996 issues of C&RL News and to Eldon Tamblyn who in his retirement graciously worked with Kit to edit it. We so appreciate the efforts of these wonderful volunteers.
