This message from Marie Wallin who is the ICSTI general secretary
contains some information on a future activity of ICOLC (a consortia
organization of library consortia) ie. a conference in the UK. As
e-journals are increasingly being sold by publishers as complete
collections and consequently purchased by library consortia anxious to
get a good price, ICOLC is a very American-driven affair intent on
knocking down prices for purchasers.

To whom this may interest in the ICSTI membership:
>From an European horizon: I picked up this info about the ICOLC meeting in
UK in December.
One can wonder what "the particular interests of european libraries" are in
this context. What about the other "regions"
Best regards, Marie Wallin

>The International Coalition of Library Consortia will be holding a special
>conference for European libraries to discuss the purchase of electronic
>publications. The conference will be at Cranfield University in the UK on
>10 and 11 December 1999. The conference will follow the successful format
>of other ICOLC meetings, consisting of presentations from publishers of
>particular interest to
>European libraries and sharing experience of the formation of library
>consortia in various countries in Europe. Representatives from
>organizations arranging for the purchase of electronic publications in any
>country in the world are invited to attend, whether a consortium purchasing
>arrangement already exists or is being considered. The number of delegates
>is limited to 80, so early booking
>is advised.
>The conference will commence at 1 p.m. on Friday 10 December and finish on
>the evening of Saturday 11 December. The all-inclusive price of 360 GBP
>includes two nights' accommodation (Friday and Saturday nights) with all
>meals and mini-bus transportation from Milton Keynes rail
>station. Cranfield University is situated about 50 miles north-west of
>London, and the accommodation and meetings will be held in a modern
>conference hotel, details of which can be found at
>http://www.cranfield.ac.uk/som/cmdc/. A mini-bus will take delegates
>arriving at Milton Keynes rail station (which has regular fast services
>from London) to the University between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday, with
>return journeys on Sunday  morning. A booking form can be found at the end
>of this  announcement or on the conference
>A full conference programme will be issued on the Web pages  in due course
>and delegates making early bookings for the  conference  will be invited to
>comment on a draft programme.
>ICOLC, the International Coalition of Library Consortia, has been
>successful in influencing the terms under which vendors offer electronic
>publications. Information about the work and membership of ICOLC can be
>found at http://www.library.yale.edu/consortia/. Several European
>organizations are already in membership of ICOLC and the need was felt for
>a conference devoted to the particular interests of European libraries,
>although there will be a number of delegates from the United States, Canada
>and other countries at the Cranfield conference. Libraries in all countries
>of the world are facing similar problems in arranging for  the purchase of
>electronic publications,
>and this  conference provides an opportunity to share experience and to
>question publishers about their policies.
