This year’s Library Technology Conference is again intended to provide an opportunity for library professionals and the technologists who support them to discuss the technologies that are affecting library services; to see examples of what libraries are doing with these technologies; and to provide a venue where participants can learn specific skills or knowledge that they can take back and adapt for use within their own libraries. The number of conference participants will be limited to no more than 450 in order to help ensure a quality conference experience and to help facilitate the interactive and hands-on nature of many of the sessions.
The two-day conference features two keynote speakers, Mita Williams and Barbara Fister, and will also include more than 60 conference sessions – traditional lecture-style sessions, hands-on/workshop sessions, interactive technology dialogue sessions, and poster sessions. From appification of information to tips for becoming a training video star, a wide range of library technology-related topics are covered during Lib Tech 2014 sessions.
We hope that you and other staff from your library will make plans to join us for this conference! For more information, visit the conference website.
