AM98 Proceedings
ASIS 1998 Annual Conference
October 26-29, 1998
Pittsburgh Hilton and Towers
Pittsburgh, PA

As the Internet spans the globe, we are beginning to see the growth of a truly global economy fueled by the exchange of information and information-based products.  In this new economy there is an ever-increasing and critical need to provide access to the information available.  Information and knowledge are rapidly becoming available to anyone, located anywhere, at any time.

Information science has provided many of the key elements in making this global information accessible to those who need it.  These proceedings of the 61st ASIS Annual Meeting contain the contributed papers and descriptions of the SIG sessions that examine information access and what it means in a global information economy.

The papers included here range from examinations of the economics of the World Wide Web, to studies of electronic resources for scholars and cross-language information retrieval.  The SIG sessions include discussions and presentations ranging from in-depth examinations of information standards to hearings on intellectual property issues and explorations of the ethical issues of information access.

The proceedings are arranged in three parts.  The first part includes all of the contributed papers in the order in which they were presented at the meeting.  The second part includes abstracts and descriptions for all of the SIG-sponsored sessions.  The third part includes notes on the keynote speakers and plenary sessions held at the meeting.  Subject and author indexes to the proceedings conclude the volume.
