> On 13 and 14 August 1998, a seminar on "Convergence in the Digital Age:
> Challenges for Libraries, Museums and Archives" will be held with
> support of the European Union, in Amsterdam. The seminar is a satellite
> event of this years IFLA General conference which takes place in
> Amsterdam from 16 to 21 August 1998.
> Libraries, museums and archives are all increasingly dealing with
> documents, publications and information in electronic form. This new
> environment is obliging them to confront digitisation, archiving,
> preservation, new users services and new economic models in a complex
> legal framework.
> The seminar is hence a unique opportunity for those interested in the
> fields of libraries, museums or archives to share their experiences of
> handling digital information and to discuss common issues and
> challenges. It also aims at providing new ideas for the definition of
> strategies for co-operation in a digital environment.
> The seminar is organised in 6 main thematic sessions:
> I. The Organisation of Knowledge in a Digital Environment
> II. The Citizen's Access to the Digital Heritage
> III. New Services in their Legal Context
> IV. The Future of the Digital Present
> V. Converging Technologies and Standards for Digital Collections
> VI. Strategic Issues in Research and Technological Development
> These themes will be illustrated by presentations of ongoing projects.
> Most of these projects are sponsored by the European Commission.

If our lives are not to be controlled by chemicals and computers,
our schools had better get on with what is their overwhelmingly most
important task: teaching their charges to express themselves clearly
and with precision in both speech and writing; in other words,
leading them toward mastery of their own language. Failing that,
all their instruction in mathematics and science is waste of time.
