FIRST CIRCULAR AND CALL FOR PAPERS


Melcom International's 22d annual Conference will be held in Venezia from
Monday 22 May  to Wednesday  24 May 2000. Lecture sessions will take place
in the Aula Magna of the University, in Ca'Dolfin (a very beautiful room,
see at www.unive.it/!wda/ateneo/amministrazione/sedi/aulam), on Monday and
Wednesday, while we will be excursioning and visiting on Tuesday.

Melcom's  host and local organizer is 

Antonella Ghersetti
Dip. scienze dell'antichita' e del vicino oriente 
Universita Ca'Foscari
Ca' Cappello, S. Polo 2035 - 30125 (VE), VENEZIA, ITALIA
Tel: +39 41 5287220 ; Fax: +39 41 5241891

There is a call for papers in the following categories :

- Automation for Middle -Eastern collections, with a special call for
papers on the UNICODE standard
- Manuscript studies
- Rare material collections
- Acquisition policies and coordination between libraries
- Internet resources for Middle Eastern Librarianship

Please send proposed titles of papers in English or French to the secretary
of MELCOM International.

Melcom International is an open organization, welcoming members from all
fields connected with Middle Eastern librarianship.  

A first program and fuller details will be circulated as soon as possible,
but ONLY TO THOSE WHO HAVE STATED THEIR INTEREST. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS. 
Please also be aware that it is much easier and cheaper to send e-mails
than regular mail, and send your electronic address if you have one when
confirming your interest in receiving next circular. This should be made,
preferably to the secretary, before end of January 2000.

As usual, all participants travel by their own arrangements, and will need
to make their own bookings for accomodation. Actually, the emergency seems
to be hotel booking, Venice being even more Venice in 2000. The list on the
following page should help you. Unfortunately, no special price is
available, but A. Ghersetti recommends Falier (very nice, 100.000-200.000
single), Pantalon (nice, 100.000-260.000), Tivoli (near Ca'Dolfin, like the
2 others, but cheaper), or La Calcina (very very nice, but more to walk,
100.000-160.000)



Hoping to see you all in Italy and to hear from you soon.

Nathalie Rodriguez
Secretary, Melcom International
