ELECTRONIC SERIALS INSTITUTE - 2

Based on the successful institute on electronic serials held in Washington, DC
in September 1997, the ALCTS Serials Section is pleased to announce that ESI-2
will be held in St. Louis, MO on
April 24-25,1998.

Librarians from all types and sizes of libraries need the practical skills to
handle electronic serials as well as the conceptual understanding of the
theoretical implications of this rapidly
changing format. The Serials Section of ALCTS presents Through the Arch:
Electronic Serials from Acquisition to Access, an institute designed to meet
these needs, on April 24-25, 1998, at the Regal Riverfront Hotel in St. Louis,
MO. The institute begins at midday on Friday, April 24, and continues all day
on Saturday, April 25.

The keynote presentation, focused breakout sessions, and a panel discussion
will address both the theoretical and the practical aspects of electronic
serials. Friedemann Weigel (Managing Partner,
Information Systems Director, Harrassowitz, Germany) will offer a keynote
titled Electronic Serials into the Millennium: Destruction, Change and
Opportunities. A panel comprised of Sharon Cline McKay (Electronic Sales
Manager, Blackwell's Information Services) and George Machovec (Technical
Director, Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries) will discuss Management and
Technical Considerations for Acquiring and Accessing Electronic Serials.

There will be three breakouts designed to stimulate small group discussion on
specific topics: Jim Mouw (Head of Serials, Univ. of Chicago) and Jack
Montgomery (Technical Services and Collection
Management Librarian, Univ. of Missouri Law School) on Acquisition of
Electronic Serials: State of the Art. Where are We and Where are we going?
 Norma Fair (Catalog Librarian, Univ. of Missouri) and Beverley Geer (Head
Cataloger, Trinity Univ., San Antonio) on Access to Digital Resources: Theory
and Application for the Next Generation of Catalogers; and Barbara Preece
(Assistant Access Services Librarian, Southern Illinois Univ.) on Training:
Helping Staff and Users Make the Transition to the Electronic Journal
Environment. These breakouts will be offered three times. Shirley Baker (Vice
Chancellor for Information Technology and Dean of University Libraries,
Washington Univ., St. Louis) will close the institute with highlights and
reflections on the institute.
