Those attending the ALA Midwinter meeting may be interested in the
following events.

As you make your arrangements for the ALA Midwinter meeting in
Philadelphia, mark your calendars now for these events sponsored by
OCLC Digital and Preservation Resources (DPR).  Watch for
registration information later this fall.

        the DPR Center in Bethlehem, PA.  The tour will include
        microfilming and digitization facilities and will feature
        the new equipment we've installed to support the historical
        newspaper digitization service, powered by Olive. An
        in-depth look at how Olive can help you expand access to
        your newspapers and other complex print documents will also
        be presented.  The Bethlehem Center is the only place in the
        US where this "factory" is installed.

    *   Friday, January 24  1:30-4:30 p.m.  OCLC Symposium: The Next
        Generation of Digital Libraries--Collaboration for
        Preservation and Access. A panel of librarians and
        preservation professionals will explore activities underway
        to develop digital collections through the OCLC Digital and
        Preservation Cooperative.  NOTE:  If you wish to attend the
        Symposium, be sure to register for the morning tour of the
        Bethlehem DPR Center.

Additional DPR events held during the conference will include
sessions on the Digital Archive, CONTENTdm for special collections,
and the Digital Co-op's historical newspaper program.  Details on
these and other OCLC ALA programs will be available at
