Today networked computers have introduced a level of complexity because they allow types of transactions we didn't dare dream of before. Are customer expectations and current technologies converging? As our digital environments evolve almost faster than we can absorb, we must understand where scientific communication is moving in order to anticipate how our roles today will change. The Library Without Walls at Los Alamos National Laboratory will be used as an example of integrating leading digital library technology today with a view of what is on our horizon.   10:00-10:15 Questions   10:15-10:45 oneFish by SIFAR: the Participatory Approach to Fisheries Information Management in the Virtual Environment Joan Baron Varley, SIFAR/FAO, Rome, Italy & EURASLIC President oneFish is a new Internet-based knowledge management system being developed by SIFAR and the UN/FAO Fisheries Department in partnership with the World Agriculture Information Centre (WAICENT). The design team has spent the last year developing a prototype that is now undergoing intensive testing by a small group of fisheries specialists, with a view to launching the system in the Fall, 2000. oneFish draws together a broad cross section of stakeholders within the fisheries and aquatic research community. The design of oneFish has been demand-led, and the management of oneFish is fully decentralised, with the primary aim of raising the profile of fisheries and aquatic research and reinforcing its impact on responsible fisheries development. An overview of oneFish is presented. Development to date is described, along with new attributes and functionality in progress, and additional attributes and functionality proposed for the future. oneFish development is currently being sponsored by DFID (UK), Norway, ICEIDA, CIDA, IDRC, The World Bank, UNDP, and FAO.   10:45-11:00 Questions   11:00-11:30 Break (Salon B) View Exhibits (Mezzanine Lobby) Bid on Guin Auction (Salon A) Dinner sign-up sheets in back of Salon A Sign up for Cacophony Lunch (on Wednesday) Sign up for Concurrent Sessions (on Wednesday)   11:30-12:00 Enterprise Information Portal:       the Thursday-After Problem Dr. Julie Hartigan, Autonomy, Inc, San Francisco, CA An enterprise information portal offers a customized view of internal and external information that is relevant to an individual's job, whether they are students, researchers, or librarians. The portal's primary goal is to minimize the need for patrons to waste time endlessly searching through the intranet, internal repositories, or the Web. Additionally a portal should enable Information Professionals to more effectively serve their patrons.   12:00-4:15 (Moderator: Stephanie Haas)   12:00-12:15 Questions   12:15-1:30 Lunch (Salon B)   1:30-2:00 Advanced Web Searching for the Information Professional Kristen Metzger, Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution, Florida Information professionals don't "surf the net" since this implies that one is just skimming over the surface of a sea of information or worse, drowning in it. To quickly extract specific, relevant information from the Internet, the serious searcher must be familiar with the structure, functionality, strengths, weaknesses and special features of the most efficient search engines. We'll examine the differences between free-text and index-based search engines, multi-search engines, web directories, metasites and intelligent agents.   2:00-2:15 Questions   2:15-2:35 Evolution of a Security System for a Small Library Kathy Maxson, Nova Univ., Florida   2:35-2:55 Cambridge Scientific Abstracts ASFA Update Craig Emerson   2:55-3:15 Break (Salon B) View Exhibits (Mezzanine Lobby) Bid on Guin Auction (Salon A) Sign up for Cacophony Lunch (on Wednesday) Sign up for Concurrent Sessions (on Wednesday)   3:15--3:45 Under Antarctic Ice Peter Brueggeman, Director, Scripps Institution of Oceanography Library A slide talk based on 1999 and 1997 experiences in Antarctica scuba diving under the ice, assisting a professional underwater photographer/cinematographer. The 1997 trip was featured in the February 1999 of National Geographic and some magazines in Germany and France. The 1999 trip will be a PBS Nature film in high-definition format. This project is the basis for the speakers web- based underwater field guide to McMurdo Sound ---the first color photo-based underwater field guide for Antarctica.   3:45-4:00 Questions   4:00-4:15 Raiders of the Lost Archives Duncan Stacy, Industrial Historian, Common Resources Consulting Ltd., Richmond BC   4:15-4:45 President's Report: Stephanie Haas, Univ. of Florida   4:45-6:00 Business Meeting for General Membership (Salon A) Council of Singers Report Janet Webster, Director, Guin Library, Hatfield Marine Science Center, Oregon State Univ.   6:00 Dinner Dine Around Town Sign-Up or on your own

These principles cover the most important and pressing issues for libraries today. These include scholarly and government information availability, the creation of information systems and the dissemination and preservation of information and knowledge, and finally, the role of the library as the intellectual commons where the community meets to create and share new knowledge. This presentation will discuss these principles and the role librarians will play in meeting the challenge of creating the library of the future.   9:15-9:30 Questions   9:30-10:00 IAMSLIC Linking Libraries Project Anne Ball, NOAA Coastal Services Center, Information Resources The NOAA Coastal Information Library is a Web site that allows users to locate coastal resources by searching the on-line catalog systems of many libraries throughout the United States. Recently, the developers of the Coastal Information Library were asked to create a similar system for IAMSLIC. Its members were contacted, and those with Z39.50 systems provided the developers with access parameters for their catalogs which in turn were added to the Coastal Information Library. Now, the opportunity exists to either update the Coastal Information Library to better meet the needs of IAMSLIC or to create a separate IAMSLIC catalog search page.   10:00-10:15 Questions   10:15-10:30 Coffee (Salon B) Exhibits (Mezzanine Lobby) Last chance to see exhibits. Guin Silent Auction (Salon A) Sign up for Cacophony Lunch (on Wednesday) Sign up for Concurrent Sessions (on Wednesday) Dinner sign-up sheets (Salon A)   10:30-11:00 Culture and Competition in Killer Whales Lance Barrett-Lennard, Univ. of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC Humans have long been fascinated by killer whales. They roam every ocean, hunt in packs, and prey on the largest animals that have ever lived on earth. They also form remarkably strong bonds and use vocal dialects. Fifteen years ago, researchers were astonished to discover another aspect of their social behaviour: in some areas, independent fish-eating and mammal-eating populations share the same waters. To learn how this unusual situation developed, I collected and analyzed several hundred DNA samples from Pacific killer whales. Among other questions, my study asked whether individuals ever migrate between the two groups and whether the populations are, in fact, cryptic species. I will discuss my findings and present the case that the population segregation reflects cultural rather than genetic differences, and that it arose and persists because it reduces competition and conflict.   11:00 (Introduction: Jim Markham)   11:00-11:30 Coastal Peoples and Marine Plants on the Northwest Coast Nancy Turner, Univ. of Victoria, B.C. Marine Algae and seagrasses have been important resources for the Northwest Coast First Peoples for millenia. They provide food, materials and medicines, and feature in peoples narratives and traditions. This presentation will introduce people to these and other culturally significant species of marine plants.   11:30-2:30 (Moderator: Patti Marraro)   11:30-12:00 New Technologies and Information Handling in East Africa Edna Nyika, Ashah Owano, & Gilbert Msoka, Institute of Marine Sciences Zanzibar & National Museum of Kenya The rapid developments in computer technology have revolutionized the dissemination of information. The role of new technologies in East Africa will be discussed, as well as the issues raised regarding the collection, processing and distribution of this information.   12:00-1:00 Lunch (Salon B)   1:00-1:20 African RECOSIX Document Delivery Isedorius Agola, RECOSIX Regional Dispatch Centre, Mombasa, Kenya Collaborative Document Delivery services between seven research stations in Kenya from Sangoro Riverine Research Centre and various Lake regions   1:20-1:30 Questions   1:30 (Introduction: Susan Berteaux)   1:30-2:00 Preview IFREMER 2001 Marthe Melguen, Library Director, IFREMER, Brest, France   2:00-2:30 OceanBase: a Marine Science       & Technology Bibliographic Database James W.

During this session, we'll discuss how small libraries manage to provide the range of services needed by patrons, and how several solo-librarians have addressed the challenge. Open for discussion, the best way to maintain and develop your professional contacts, how to keep up with developments in librarianship, and methods to measure the success of your efforts. 2. Into the World of the Cyberian: for Librarians Too! (Salon B) Member discussion facilitated by: Jane Barnwell, Palau Community College, Western Caroline Islands Steve Watkins, Monterey Bay Library, California State Univ. A discussion on how the electronic world is changing what we do and how we do it. We will discuss the impact on library services, of going digital from the patron and staff point of view. Topics may include: how will we cope with changes in policies and procedures from the small research library to the comprehensive university library? How will we teach our patrons to be comfortable with this new world? 3. Master the Art of Presentation (Salon A) Facilitator: Melissa Autumn Wong, Marymount College Library, Rancho Palos Verdes, California Got something to say? In this workshop you'll learn how to create and deliver a great presentation. The skills learned in this session will be applicable to many situations-conference papers, library instruction, and public speaking. Specific topics covered will include: creating a take-away message, public speaking and delivery, creating a visual presentation (using software such as PowerPoint or less technical means), handouts, and what to do when everything goes wrong (and it does!).   3:00-3:15 Break (Salon B) Guin Auction winners announced   3:15-4:00 Business Meeting for General Membership (Salon A)   4:00-6:00 Executive Board Meeting (Main Pacific Room)   7:00-8:00 Reception (Mezzanine Lobby) Music - harp and violin duo Group Photo Pick up Guin Auction winnings   8:00 pm + Annual Celebration (Harbour Ballroom) Music - harp & violin duo T-Shirt/Mug Exchange (hosted by Liz Winiarz)

The ocean carbon cycle plays a major role controlling atmospheric CO2 levels. The oceans presently remove about 30% of the annual anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Variability in the biogeochemical cycles could exert significant feedback effects during conditions of climate change. Given the complexity of ocean biogeochemistry, coupled biogeochemical / ocean circulation models are principal tools to assess and understand the sensitivity to climate change of the ocean carbon cycle. However, substantial improvements are required in the current suite of numerical models if we are to better understand the present ocean biogeochemical state and predict potential future responses to anthropogenic perturbations.   10:45-11:15 Break   11:15-11:35 Seismic Activity in British Columbia Garry Rogers, Natural Resources Canada, Pacific Geoscience Centre   11:35-11:55 Arctic: Results/Programs Fiona McLaughlin, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Pacific Region, Marine Environment and Habitat Sciences Division   11:55-12:15 International Marine Science: Shared Problems - Contemporary Expertise Rod Forbes, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Pacific Region, Office of the Regional Director of Science   12:15-1:45 Lunch (IOS Cafeteria)   1:45-2:15 Formal Close of Conference   2:15-4:30 Tour of IOS campus and ships   4:30-5:15 Return to Victoria
