ALCTS is experimenting with Midwinter Meeting programming during the upcoming conference in Philadelphia with an all-day symposium on Friday, January 24, 2003. Titled Managing Electronic Resources: Meeting the Challenge, this event will offer practical information and alternatives for dealing with these valuable and extremely expensive resources many libraries now own.
