I think the LITA forum can be interesting for readers here playing with Koha.
We are a part of "collaborative projects in the digital age" aren't we ?
It seems that yes, as I read in the program :

2003 LITA National Forum

"Putting Technology Into Practice" is the theme for the sixth annual
Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) National Forum,
to be held October 2 - 5, 2003 at the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside,
Norfolk, VA.

Three exciting general sessions anchor the event.  R. David Lankes,
Executive Director of the Information Institute of Syracuse and
Assistant Professor at Syracuse University's School of Information
Studies, will speak on the current state of digital reference
services.  Liz Bishoff, Executive Director of the Colorado
Digitization Program, will discuss collaborative projects in the
digital age.  The closing session features David Seaman, Director of
the Digital Library Federation, speaking on major trends in digital

More than 25 concurrent sessions provide a wealth of practical
information.  Topics include virtual reference consortia, digital
library collection management, database-driven websites, metadata
standards (including OAI), XML databases, open source portal
management, cross-database search projects, managing access to GIS
repositories, usability studies, and much more. In addition, for the
first time, the 2003 Forum includes poster sessions, presenting
unique technology applications that solve specific problems, such as
digital rights management in the academic environment, PDA use in
health sciences libraries, and link maintenance and repair.

Add to the Forum experience with a choice of preconference workshops,
a full day on "The Library as a Place in the Digital Age," or a half
