Los Angeles Chapter of the Association for Information Science announces its

1998 Annual Fall Workshop

Who’s in the Driver’s Seat—You or Technology?

The workshop has come and gone, but read on to find out what you may have missed (or take a trip down memory lane...):

The Year 2000 clock is ticking away. The development cycle for new products is racing faster and faster–is your organization ahead of the game or just barely keeping up? Users’ expectations are skyrocketing–can you meet them? Changing technologies bring challenges and worries as well as alluring promises–and your organization is counting on you to manage it all!

Are you in the driver's seat? Would you like to learn more about the complex issues facing today's information professionals? Are you ready to have some assumptions challenged and others confirmed–and hear about how your colleagues are dealing with these issues? Here's the workshop you've been wishing for, with up-to-the-minute solutions, the first word on new research, and the opportunity to discuss these issues with leaders in the field. See you there!

New this year! Lunchtime discussions on a variety of topics from copyright to digital libraries!

What do knowledge management and information literacy mean for different populations?

Are definitions changing?

Are expectations changing?

Are we doing a good job?
