Abstract : Predictions about the future of military libraries are rife with words that could have been copied from any of a multitude of management re-engineering textbooks: challenge, change, chaos, closure, commercialization, commitment, competition, contracting out, cost-benefit, creativity, customization. The future promises to reflect the most recent past: a turbulent re-examination, retooling and, at times, complete abandonment of the status quo. Military libraries have become inextricably caught up in the sweeping redesign of how the federal government does business. What should our "Strategies for a New Millennium" be? Our Vision 2000? One hundred and forty-seven participants met in Dayton, Ohio, at the 41st Military Librarians Workshop*, November 18-20, 1997 to listen, discuss, and contemplate a whirlwind of factors that will have a lasting effect on tomorrow's military libraries and their librarians.
