ACRL has just completed a successful National Conference in Nashville that offered ten preconferences, more than 175 program sessions, and more than 200 exhibits. A special thanks to the many individuals, organizations, and corporations who worked so hard to make this conference a success appears on page 323. A full report of the conference activities will appear in the June issue.

ACRL is again ready to offer you a full complement of professional development activities at the ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco. A special program insert is included in this issue to help you plan your conference schedule.

In this issue we continue our Internet resources series with a look at information about grants and foundations provided by Hilary Sternberg (page 314).

Don Frank and his colleagues at Georgia Tech relate how they provided library services throughout the 1996 Summer Olympics—despite the fact that their campus had been taken over by the Olympic Village (page 319).

Susan Jurist offers us the second part of her guide to using type and obtaining fonts (page 324).

This issue also includes the final version of the “ACRL Guidelines for University Undergraduate Libraries,” approved by both the ACRL Board of Directors and the ALA Standards Committee (page 330).

Take a few moments to celebrate the accomplishments of ACRL’s fifteen award winners listed on pages 337—41. These awards will be presented at various events during the ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco.

ACRL depends on a cadre of active individuals to provide its many conferences, programs, publications, and other activities. Strong leaders are always sought. If you are interested in filling a leadership role in ACRL check out “The Time to Lead” on page 335 and see how your talents might best fit with these opportunities.
