Introduction

There are at least two potential roles for the information professional in the next decade. There is a ``best of all possible worlds'' scenario, and then there is the ``Oops! Wish we could start over...'' outcome. Our present society is technologically capable of catapulting itself into the `better world' for the coming century. Financially, our society is either unaware of this opportunity or is merely unwilling to pay for it. The Information profession can help establish an enabling National Information Policy by awakening the public to its existing example of well-applied technology. The actions we take today as a professional group and as a society will determine the role of the information professional in the 2000's.
