"Turning Point of Library Activities"
Makoto Nagao
(Director of National Diet Library, Japan)

Libraries are confronted with the age of information technology and are forced to go toward digital library system. They have to digitize not only library materials but also capture web information. They have to preserve digital materials for a very long period, and give convenient and high-quality retrieval services to users.
To go in this direction it is essential to foster education and training activities of librarians in information science and software technology, particularly natural language processing technologies, their software construction and maintenance. The paper will discuss these problems in some details.
