Welcome to the Spring 1997 Task Force Meeting Home Page
Welcome to the Coalition for Networked Information Spring 1997 meeting information page. The Spring 1997 Task Force Meeting was held at the Crystal Gateway Marriott on Tuesday, April 1 and concluded on Wednesday, April 2, 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.
Issue Collaboratories are highly interactive sessions of discussion, stimulated by brief presentations given by one or more leaders from the information professions. Each Collaboratory will provide an opportunity for a focused and sustained exchange of ideas about a current issue.
