Breaking the Boundaries:
Exploring International Documents

Documents Association of NJ Fall Conference
Friday, November 7, 2003
Alexander Library, Rutgers, The State University


Over the last two years current events have challenged our skills in locating international documents. Where can we find that U.N. General Assembly resolution or the most recent vote of the Security Council? Is Tony Blair's Iraq dossier on the Internet? How about Clinton's Executive Order on the Taliban?

This year's annual conference offers a timely and informative exploration of the field of international documents and information. The conference includes four programs presented by expert speakers, and our annual state documents awards ceremony. Breakfast, lunch and free parking are included in the price of registration. Mary Fetzer, documents librarian at Alexander Library and chair of the DANJ International Documents Interest Group will introduce the program.

Our keynote speaker is journalist Barbara Crossette, a reporter for the New York Times for twenty-eight years, including seven years as the Times Bureau Chief at the United Nations. She is author of four books on India, and has taught at Columbia, Princeton and Bard College. She is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Women's Foreign Policy Group, and serves on the board of the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs in New York.

Program Descriptions:

If the above sounds like a day not to be missed, we agree! Join us for Breaking the Boundaries: Exploring International Documents. Breakfast and luncheon will be served on site at the Scholarly Communication Center of the Alexander Library.

See you there!
