This is it!!  This weekend marks the start of the 2002 ASIST Annual Meeting.

This year SIG-DL has worked with many other SIGs to put together a
comprehensive program of sessions of interest to information professionals
and librarians working in many different contexts.  I've compiled a list of
SIG DL sessions so you can be sure to join us for our exciting and
informative programs.

I'm looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones in Philly.
Please feel free to introduce yourself -- I really enjoy meeting ASIST

best regards,
