BCR to Host Free DIALOGFair April 30

By James Speed Hensinger

BCR will host a free DIALOGFair Wednesday, April 30, at BCR's Aurora (Colorado) offices. We are pleased to partner with Knight-Ridder Information (KRI) to present this event at which the new DIALOG Web and DIALOG Select interfaces will be demonstrated. Participants, who will be able to search the web for free, are urged to bring problem searches to be used for demonstrations.

Learn about the new [email protected] system, a subscription-based service on the World Wide Web. Information about UnCover document delivery and customized web gateways, as well as KRI CD-ROM products, also will be available. In addition, a free DIALOG Refresher Seminar, presented by DIALOG staff, is scheduled. Ethel Salonen, director of academic sales; Rod Haenni, major account executive; and Jay Ford, customer service specialist; will be on hand to help train and answer questions on all KRI products. The afternoon session will include a hands-on segment for practice time. Take advantage of the expertise of the DIALOG trainers to enhance your searching skills.

Registration and a continental breakfast are scheduled from 8-9 a.m., with the DIALOGFair to begin at 9 a.m. KRI products and services will be reviewed in the morning. After lunch, the DIALOG Refresher Seminar emphasizing DIALOG Web is scheduled at 1 p.m. A hands-on practice time will be included. Light refreshments will be served, and door prizes will be awarded.

Although the DIALOGFair is free, those planning to attend are asked to pre-register so BCR can ensure that adequate space and materials are available. Please contact Bridget Pence by e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at (800) 397-1552. Directions and a map to BCR are found on our web page at.
