The 2005 NFAIS Annual Conference, "Whose Mind is it Anyway?  Identifying and
Meeting Diverse User Needs in the Ongoing Battle for Mindshare," is
scheduled for February 28 - March 1, 2005 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel,
Philadelphia, PA.

If you are an information provider seeking to expand mindshare within a
given user group or across user groups, or an information professional
seeking to more effectively meet the needs of your clientele, this is one
conference you will not want to miss!  Building upon the theme of the highly
successful 2004 NFAIS conference, the three day meeting will examine the
differences and commonalities in the search and retrieval requirements of
information professionals/librarians and desktop searchers.  It will not
only look at how those diverse requirements impact the use, perception and
purchase of traditional information products and services across market
sectors and subject disciplines, but also how traditional information
providers - publishers, libraries, database producers and technology
companies -  can fulfill the needs and expectations of the expanding
universe of desktop searchers through a more seamless integration into the
user's daily workflow process.

The program is being finalized, and a press release describing the
conference, along with registration, hotel, and local information can be
