Need Proceedings?

The InterDok Directory of Published Proceedings (DoPP) provides searchable access to more than 45,000 records of published proceedings from professional conferences, meetings and symposia. [DoPP is updated weekly; UW-Madison users can search from 1995 to the present]. Construct searches by making selections from the relevant drop-down menus by subject or by sponsor, country or year. Records supply information that is useful for finding copies in libraries—either by searching MadCat or WorldCat. The InterDok product also supplies access to MInd: The Meetings Index for locating future conferences and meetings—with entries that supply a Web link when available.

InterDok Directory of Published Proceedings can be selected, by name, from the Libraries' E-Resource Gateway. (From the InterDok page, select IP Access User Login).
