European Libraries program from ALA
If you have an interest in the ways that European libraries are cooperating now, you will be interested in a program available online from the ACRL West European Studies Section that was presented at the ALA conference in Anaheim. Cooperative Strategies for European Libraries: Access and Preservation highlights cooperative efforts to enhance access to library resources through collaborative cataloging and preservation. The resources can be very useful for finding information in European libraries, including digital collections.
You will notice 2 links for the audio (mp3) and slides (power point) for the first two presenters. By opening the slides first you will be ready to move through them as the audio begins. Open the slides first by right clicking on your mouse and then clicking to open in a new window. Now go back to the original page and open the audio either in the same window or by right clicking to open a new window. The third presentation is only video which you can open in the same window or a new window if you choose.
