Miles Conrad Memorial Lectures
A significant highlight of the NFAIS Annual Conference program is the Miles Conrad Memorial Lecture, 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.
Industry leaders, innovators and opinion-makers from the full breadth of the information community have been designated as the Miles Conrad Lecturer. Use the links below to view the presentations of each honored lecturer.
