Information about this page

The Web documents that are accessible from this page were derived from the files used to produce the printed proceedings for the conference. The HTML conversion was done by running WordPerfect files through the macro WPTOHTML, written by Hunter Monroe. The tables and figures were scanned and converted to GIF files. A few of these files are quite large, so the file sizes are given in parentheses (e.g., (34K)) as part of the link text for each GIF in the Web versions of the papers.

The papers cited above that do not have Web links are not yet available in HTML form. All the papers (including those not available in HTML) are in the printed proceedings from the conference. Copies of the proceedings may be purchased by sending a cheque for $40 ($45 outside North America) to the School of Library and Information Studies, 3-20 Rutherford South, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada T6G 2J4. The cheque should be made payable to the School of Library and Information Studies.
