The Ohio library community is fortunate in so many ways, as pointed out by Library Journal Editor-in-Chief John Berry in his editorial of June 15, 1997, "I saw the future in Ohio." The subject of Mr. Berry's unrestrained delight was "Ohio's networks, consortia, state-level library agencies, and organizations. They are the working parts of a creatively designed, well-oiled time machine that deals with the political, economic, and technological future of libraries and their many partners and competitors."

CAMLS is honored to have as our guests at the Annual Meeting representatives from four of those statewide networks in whose hands the responsibilities of our technological future has been placed. They will not be able to tell us precisely what the future will hold for libraries, but they will be able to tell us something about the Next Great Leap Forward in their respective organizations.
