Information Today, Inc., a key provider of technology conferences for more than twenty-five years with Internet Librarian and KMWorld, is pleased to announce the 28th annual Computers in Libraries – the most comprehensive North American conference and exhibition concentrating on all aspects of library technology. Our theme this year is Evolving in New Directions.
With small steps and big leaps libraries and information organizations are evolving in new and exciting ways. The fast changing technology and social trends are fueling this evolution in both exciting and scary ways. Computers, spaces and library and information services are all evolving in different, and mostly positive, directions. This year's Computers in Libraries theme focuses on mobile devices and electronic collections and how their use is changing the spaces and services in libraries. It focuses on the skills, competencies, and roles that are evolving to deal with all these changes in our communities, campuses and organizations. Opportunities abound but taking risks and trying new and different things is always a challenge. Computers in Libraries 2013 will share how leading edge libraries and information services are evolving, managing and excelling. It will provide lots of ideas and insights for jumpstarting your evolution strategies!
If you would like to participate in Computers in Libraries 2013 as a speaker or workshop leader, please submit a proposal as soon as possible. The deadline for proposals is Wednesday, September 5.
