The Library Technology Conference is in its second year and grew out of the very successful Midwest Library Technology conference held in May 2008. That event attracted participants from academic, public, special and K-12 school libraries from five upper midwest states. This year's conference is again intended to provide an opportunity for librarians from around the region and the country 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.
In addition to more than 40 sessions and hands-on workshops on a wide variety of technology-related topics impacting libraries, we are very pleased that Eric Lease Morgan and Stacey Greenwell will be joining us as keynote speakers. Eric, a frequent contributor to ALA/LITA technology trends and Head of Digital Access and Information Architecture at University of Notre Dame, is well known as a leader on library technology issues. Stacey helped to plan and is now head of "The Hub" - the University of Kentucky's Information Commons - and will speak on how all types of libraries can incorporate 'information commons' concepts into their library and will share her experiences around planning technology/learning 'spaces' in libraries.
