With computers not only in and around libraries but also libraries in computers these days, tomorrow should be very interesting in the information world. Will libraries still be at the core of the information industry, connecting with technology to spread information, ideas and learning? Will libraries be in new places and spaces? Libraries are definitely at the forefront of experimenting with and adopting new technology, tools and processes. They are using them to spread ideas and learning and to create specialized and personalized services for their communities.
Our conference theme, Creating Tomorrow: Spreading Ideas & Learning,focuses on leading edge technology tools, processes, and practices in libraries, as well as the new spaces and places where their products and services thrive. It highlights exciting new online initiatives and innovations in all types of information enterprises; tools and techniques for enhancing user-friendly digital information flows; information discovery and visualization methods for spreading information, ideas and learning; building new communities and supporting online connections in engaging ways, and more. Join us at the most comprehensive conference for library and information professionals interested in technology to discover insights, strategies and practices that will allow us to create tomorrow and manage computers, libraries, digital information, and people in a cohesive, exciting, and productive way.
