A research seminar on "Electronic access to fiction" will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 11-13 November 1996. The seminar, which is being organized by the Scandinavian Book House Consortium, and the Royal School of Librarianship of Denmark, will focus on research and development in subject searching, indexing, knowledge transfer via OPACs and networking.

The aim of the seminar is both to strengthen Nordic cultural collaboration in access to fiction and, at the same time, to contribute to international research and development in electronic access to fiction and other works of art. In this context, the Community's specific RTD programme in the field of telematics applications of common interest will be participating in the seminar.

The major themes to be addressed during the seminar are as follows:

- Access to fiction via networks (Internet/WWW);
- IT applications in the arts and humanities, including cataloguing and electronic mediation of works of art;
- Classification and indexing of fiction in local and national/regional on-line catalogues;
- Electronic information services for specific user groups and communities;
- Knowledge organization for specific user groups and communities;
- Multilingual information searching and compilation of multilingual, multicultural thesauri.

Papers are invited in the above areas, with a deadline for submission of abstracts of 1 July 1996.
