In the News

ACRL’s Sixth National Conference, April 12-14, 1992, promises to be informative, stimulating, and fun. In this special National Conference issue of C&RL News we preview for you the keynote speakers, contributed papers, panel programs, exhibitors, and special conference events.

Access, copyright, technology, collection development, and bibliographic instruction are just some of the issues addressed by the contributed papers and panel programs. You will hear the latest research as well receive practical ideas you can take back to your institution. Exhibitors representing nearly 150 companies will be on hand to acquaint you with their latest products and services.

And for that time when you cannot take in one more piece of information, there are a variety of activities to choose from. Whether your idea of fun is downhill skiing, visiting historic places, shopping, or enjoying a fine meal, Salt Lake City provides an array from which to select.

This issue of C&RL News also includes reports of two recent meetings. ACRL’s representatives, Tom Kirk and Noreen Alldredge, provide us with the first report of the fall meeting of the Coalition for Networked Information. Barton Lessin gives us a look at the issues discussed at the recent Off- campus Library Services Conference.

Elsewhere in this issue: Lyn Condron describes a successful student assistant program that improved the morale and performance of the assistants, and Mariol Wogaman stresses the importance of training newly appointed reference librarians. Carol Henderson reveals the final funding levels for FY 1992 authorized by Congress of selected programs such as HEA and LSCA. Patricia Wand and Lynn Scott Cochrane tell us how we can use and promote the WHCLIS resolutions in new forums. Gail Junion-Metz and Ray Metz describe the discussions taking place at ACRL chapters.

I encourage you to spend some time with this issue reviewing the many opportunities available to you during ACRL’s Sixth National Conference. Then make your travel plans, your hotel reservation (remember it is still ski season in April so rooms may fill up quickly), and send in your registration form (found on page 52) so that you can join us in Salt Lake City.
