  "Scholarly Communication and the Future of Special Collections"

       In recent years the structure and processes of scholarly
  communication have undergone a transformation as radical as that
  witnessed by the introduction of moveable type in the fifteenth
  century.  The plenary sessions will examine the nature of this
  transformation, and speculate on the impacts that will be felt in the
  world of rare book, manuscript, and special collections librarians.

       Speakers: "Not What it Used to Be: Scholarly Communication Then
  and Now," John Budd, School of Library and Information Science,
  Louisiana State University; "The Coevolution of Networks, Networked
  Information, and Learning Communities," Paul Peters, Director,
  Coalition for Networked Information; "Informal Publication and the
  Scholarly Record: Bits and Bytes from the Experience of Editing
  Humanist and Other Electronic Lists," Elaine Brennan, Women Writers
  Project, Brown University, Co- Editor, Humanist; "Concepts of 'Text'
  in the Electronic Environment," Gordon Neavill, School of Library and
  Information Studies, University of Alabama; "Copyright Issues in
  Electronic Publishing," Brian Kahin, John F. Kennedy School of
  Government, Harvard University; "Preserving the Intellectual Record in
  the Electronic Environment," Peter Graham, Associate Vice-President
  for Information Services, Rutgers University; Panel: Reactions from

       Plenary sessions will be complemented by a series of continuing
  education seminars addressing such topics as: fundraising strategies,
  collecting western Americana, exhibition catalog awards, use of
  thesauri, broadsides and fine printing, history of science
  collections, trends in the use of special collections, conservation
  for exhibition, and administering grants.

       Social events will include a reception sponsored by the local
  chapter of the ABAA; a reception sponsored by local book artists and
  printers; and a trip to Monterey and a tour of the Monterey Aquarium,
  dinner on your own Monterey.

  city of Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay.  Daytime temperatures in late
  June may range from the lower 70s to the upper 80s, with low humidity.
  Evening temperatures may drop into the low 60s as fog rolls in from

  comfortable shoes are recommended. Accommodations and meals will be
  provided in new, apartment-style dormitories on the UCSC campus.
