ALCTS film presentation schedule correction

From: Julie Arnott <jarnott>
Date: Monday, May 23, 1994
There have been discrepancies in the some of the schedules that I've
seen regarding the exact title, location, and length of the "Film To
File" program at ALA Annual in Miami.  What follows is the correct

Title:  "Film to File and Back Again"
    (formerly "Film to File: Moving from Microfilm to Electronic

Location: Miami Beach Convention Center - D233 and D234
Time: 9 am-11 am

Sponsored by the ALCTS Preservation Microfilming Committee
Co-sponsors: RLMS Electronic Imaging Technologies Committee and LITA
Optical Systems Interest Group

This program explores concerns raised when converting microfilm to
digital files and reformatting digital files to microfilm.  Issues
related to hybrid systems incorporating film and digital technologies,
quality control, and standards are examined.  A fuller understanding of
the critical requirements that must be met as we move to the next
generation of reformatting technologies will be gained.
