Invitation to the ELAG 2001 seminar

Dear ELAG members,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 25th ELAG Library Systems Seminar from June 6th to 8th, 2001 in Praha. The theme of the meeting is the challenging issue of "Integrating heterogeneous resources". Our host organisations are: the National Library and the State Technical Library. The main meeting hall is located in the Municipal Library (Mariánské náměstí 1, Praha 1). The three libraries mentioned are very close together in the centre of Praha. Our colleagues Martin Svoboda (<>) and Adolf Knoll (<>) take care of the local organisation.

The ELAG 2001 WEB homepage is located at the State Technical Library in Praha:

All info on (programme, registration, etc.) and around the meeting (travel, hotel etc.) can be consulted there. A number of links also guide you to the WEB-sites of previous ELAG seminars.

Adminstrative formalities to accomplish when attending the meeting are hanged out on the WEB. For your convenience these are also mentioned together in the appendix "How to prepare your participation to the ELAG 2001 meeting" at the end of this document.

The Board meeting, to which all those who want to contribute to the planning of the future activities of ELAG are cordially invited, will take place on Tuesday 5 June at 13h30 in the meeting room of the State Technical Library (Mariánské nám. 5, entrance on the left hand side in the passageway to the inner yard of Klementinum). I want to urge our colleagues from Central and Eastern Europe to come with a wide representation, so that the next years programme can well cover their interests and realisations.

Our hosts in Praha made a well appreciated effort to extend the "social event" activities. Among others a post conference trip to Southern Bohemia is organised.

The organisers of this meeting should greatly appreciate the participants to respect all dates in preparing the meeting, as indicated in the appendix. We expect a great number of participants and count on your fair co-operation in the administrative preparation of this meeting.

For those who plan to attend, please be aware that June is high tourist season in Praha, the hotels have to be booked as soon as possible.

I look forward to meeting you in June in Praha,

President of ELAG
