"LEADERSHIP ON THE CYBERCAMPUS COMMONS: WHERE ARE WE IN THE VISION"
 
       ECLSS AND CJCLS OFFER JOINT PROGRAM FOR ALA NEW YORK
 
 
The Extended Campus Library Services Section (ECLSS) and the
Community and Junior College Libraries Section (CJCLS) of ACRL are
sponsoring a joint program for the ALA New York Conference.
 
Colleges and universities, no matter how wired campuses become, are
still people-dependent and need visionary leaders.  "Leadership on
the Cybercampus Commons: Where are We in the Vision?" is the
ECLSS/CJCLS conference program scheduled for Saturday, July 6 from
9:30-11:00am in the Javits Convention Center, Room 1E, Section
15-16.
 
A panel of senior academic leaders will discuss strategies they are
using to enlarge the reach of the campus and enhance learning by
the use of telecommunications and computer technologies.  In doing
so, they are creating a "cybercampus commons," where teaching and
learning are not necessarily constrained by time, locale, or access
to information resources.  They will define and discuss their own
institution's or system's perspective and address the question
uppermost in the minds of library professionals, "Where do we as
library professionals fit into their visions?"
 
Nancy Allen, Dean and Director, Penrose Library, University of
Denver will moderate the program.  Joining her as panelists are:
Gil Gonzales, Dean of Information Technology Services, Mesa
Community College, Phoenix, AZ; James Hall, President, SUNY Empire
State College, Saratoga Springs, NY; James V. Koch, President, Old
Dominion University, Norfolk, VA; and Richard Skinner, President,
Clayton State College, Morrow, GA.
 
This program is one of nine selected by ACRL to support ACRL
President Patricia Senn Breivik's 1996 President's Conference
Program theme, "Every Librarian a Leader."  The program has
received generous sponsorship from OCLC Online Computer Library
Center, Inc.
 
Please plan to attend this program and invite others.  The ECLSS
and CJCLS Program Planning Committees would like to reach our goal
of having 400 "library leaders" as the audience.
