Librarians aRe Us
images & realities

Librarians have been featured in the media in different and sometimes puzzling ways. From Desk Set to The Mummy and Buffy the Vampire Slayer the appearance and role of the librarian have changed in the popular mind. The CARL Conference theme focuses on who librarians are. As librarians, are we who the popular media says we are? What is our role? How do we fit into the Information Age? This Conference will attempt to shed some light.

This year's Conference will be held in Long Beach. CARL 2000 will start with an all day Pre-Conference on Thursday, October 5 entitled Stop the Presses! Is There an E-Book in Your Future? On Friday, October 6 four Pre-Conferences will be held in the morning, followed by the opening session and Breakout sessions. The All-Conference Reception will be Friday night around the Hilton pool (check the Accommodations page). Saturday starts with continental breakfast and Poster Sessions followed by the keynote speaker, State Librarian Dr. Kevin Starr. A Post-Conference, behind the scenes tour of the famous Aquarium of the Pacific rounds off Saturday afternoon. For a complete listing, go to the Program page.

Details will be added to these pages regularly, so please bookmark them.
