Description
When we decided to name this conference "The Information Bridge", it was an acknowledgment of the coming together of two library organizations, two countries and two cultures in a location where the significance of "the bridge" is evident and clearly understood. What we could not have predicted was the transcendence of that physical bridge by the events, circumstances and technological developments of the past year. Moving ideas and information across boundaries by means of communications technology has become the status quo. What has emerged is the speed with which we now do this, and the overwhelming variety of kinds of information that are available to be moved. This conference is the best imaginable combination of ideas, people and technology. When you design a program that combines a stellar lineup of internationally acclaimed authors and speakers with cutting edge sessions on electronic access and the transformational effect of the Internet, how could it be otherwise? Welcome to The Information Bridge. a conference that dares to "boldly go"!
