- Concepts of global, high-speed networking; the roles of various government,
not-for-profit, and commercial organizations

- The roles of libraries and information providers in a networked environment;
the "electronic" library; access to electronic information; case histories

- The practical and theoretical problems associated with cataloging or
otherwise organizing, describing, and providing access to network
resources; emerging standards

- The impact of networking and electronic publication on the conduct of
research and the dissemination of knowledge; tools for collaboration;
scholarly communities, the "invisible" college

- Educational applications of networking and networked resources; networking
