eLib and Telematics: Projects and Partnerships

Jill Beard announces a conference August 1997 in the south of England that aims to bring together people and ideas from the UK eLib and European Telematics communities.

New Tricks 2: eLib and Telematics: Projects and Partnerships

27-29 August 1997

The Conference is being supported by both eLib [1] [2] and DGXIII (Telematics Applications Programme [3] ) and will for the first time bring together projects in key areas of interest from across the EU, allowing both potential users and the project workers themselves to compare aims, objectives and results thus far.

Day one

…Brings you leading speakers from both organisations

Day two

…offers a unique opportunity to hear reports on progress from both eLib and Telematics Programmes including the four sectors of Gateways/Networked Resources; Digitisation/Images; Electronic Journals; Document Delivery. Delegates will be able to choose four from the eight sessions on offer.

Day three

…stages a major debate on the electronic library and outcomes of the programmes.


The Conference is aimed at senior managers and those with more technical interests; however all with an interest in the electronic library, will benefit from attending.

While the emphasis is European, the developments discussed will be of interest to the wider international audience.


Bournemouth University with its attractive campus is just 100 miles from London and its airports, well served by the main road and rail networks.
