Welcome to the Fall 1997 Task Force Meeting Home Page
The Fall 1997 Task Force Meeting was held at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center on Sunday, October 26 and concluded Monday, October 27, 1997.
About the Meeting: Twice each year, representatives from the member organizations of the Coalition for Networked Information gather for Task Force Meetings. The meetings are designed to explore new technologies, content, and applications; to further collaboration; to analyze technology policy issues; and to catalyze the development and deployment of new projects.
Project Briefings are the heart of every Task Force Meeting. These briefings address state-of-the-art development and issues of interest to the membership, as outlined in each year’s program plan. Architectures and standards, economic challenges, scholarly communication, digital libraries, middleware, and innovations in teaching and learning are topics that consistently engage CNI members’ interests.
Plenary Sessions held at the beginning and end of each meeting offer presentations and discussion on CNI’s latest initiatives and insights from national and international leaders in the networked information community.
Before each Task Force Meeting, CNI Executive Director Clifford Lynch provides a “Roadmap” that highlights key issues and events.
