Presented by Marjorie M.K. Hlava, CEO of Access Innovations, Inc., at the 2014 NFAIS Annual Conference on February 24, 2014.
The NFAIS Miles Conrad Lecture is named in honor of one of the key individuals responsible for the founding of NFAIS, G. Miles Conrad (1911-1964). Conrad had an early grasp of the potential of computer technology when applied to the creation, organization and dissemination of research information. His leadership contributions to the information community were such that, following his death in 1964, the NFAIS Board of Directors determined that an annual lecture series named in his honor would be central to the annual conference program.
