A conference on "Library networking in Europe" will take place in Brussels on 12-14 October 1994. The event is being organized by European Foundation for Library Cooperation (EFLC), with the support of the LIBRARIES programme of the European Commission.

The conference will include the participation of the heads of major libraries in Europe and the presentation of the main European projects promoting new information technologies and in particular networking among libraries.

The conference is designed to help libraries to make the best use of networks and other technical developments and to share experiences at European level.

A high-level representative of the LIBRARIES programme will address the subject of "Library networking in Europe" which will focus on management procedures and cooperation at European level. Some 30 experts will present their experiences in the areas of electronic publishing, new bibliographic services, OSI standards and multimedia.

The LIBRARIES programme will present the "Project Review". This will highlight the impact and the spin-off effect of this programme launched four years ago. The next EU plan of action for libraries will also be outlined during the conference.

The updated programme has now been published and includes the following sessions over the four-day event:

- Electronic publishing;
- Global access: making sense of tools;
- New library services;
- Platform for integration: OSI developments;
- Sharing and extending bibliographic services;
- Extending end-user services;
- Extending end-user services in public libraries;
- New approaches to retrospective conversion;
- Review of LIBRARIES programme;
- Issues in electronic document delivery.
