     The 64th IFLA General Conference

The Netherlands Library Community has the honour and pleasure to invite all professionals and decision makers in the library and information services world to attend and participate in the 64th General Conference of the International Federation of Library Associations & Institutions, to be held in Amsterdam from August 16 to 21, 1998. Simultaneously an exhibition on all the latest topics in the library world will be organised in the RAI Congress Centre, where the General Conference will take place. The Netherlands Organising Committee sincerely hopes you will join us and present your ideas and experien-ces so that from this dialogue new ideas can grow and new signposts can be built to direct us into the 21st century.

In 1998 the IFLA conference organisers hope that thousands of colleagues will pause at the crossroads in Amsterdam. The theme of the meeting offers scope for an exchange of experiences on the role libraries and librarians can play in bridging cultures at local, national and international levels. It calls for reflection on the role of the information professional to increase awareness and access to the many media now available for the dissemination of information and for co-operation between all the players in the information chain: writers, academics, publishers and librarians.

We look forward to welcoming you to Amsterdam!
