The emphasis of this symposium was to examine national and international ways to preserve, access, and digitize human heritage and culture. Many internationally recognized librarians shared their experiences and ideas on that topic. The 19 papers presented at the symposium dealt with issues such as: the impact of new technologies on information access and delivery; the impact of the electronic frontier on relationships between academic programs and research libraries; the economics of electronic or virtual libraries; electronic acquisitions policy; the challenges of preserving the information content while adapting to a new medium; document delivery in the 1990s; librarian education in the 21st century; fair use issues in electronic publishing; the possibility of a German national archive for electronic media; the effects of electronic publishing on library services; paradigm shifts in library automation caused by access to a global market; resources for an electronic library; national self-sufficiency in the electronic age; cooperative projects aiming for electronic libraries; and aesthetic issues in format conversion. The symposium agenda, a list of participants, and a list of participating vendors are provided. Many papers contain author abstracts and references. (BEW)
