The 1980s will be a decade of far-reaching change in the basic character of library services. Among the most powerful forces affecting libraries is the development of new technologies for the dissemination of information. The University of Pittsburgh School of Library and Information Science has organized a conference to examine the significance for libraries of technological change and related issues of network growth and private-sector expansion. A three-day conference is scheduled for November 2-4, 1981 and will feature speakers and panelists such as Toni Carbo Bearman (NCLI Richard W. Boss (ISCI), Charles W. Robinson (Baltimore County Public Library), Robert H. Roh1f (Hennepin County Library), Warren J. Haas (CIJR), Henriette D. Avram (LC), Carlton C. Rochell (NYU), and Dick W. Hays (US Dept. of Education). The registration fee is $95.
