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 475 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, Bohyun Kim and Courtney Greene McDonald, and will also include more than 60 conference sessions – traditional lecture-style sessions, hands-on/workshop sessions, interactive technology dialogue sessions, and poster sessions. A wide range of library technology-related topics will be covered during Lib Tech 2015 sessions.
For more information, visit the conference website or email the conference planners.
A limited number of rural library or school media center scholarships are available for persons who wish to attend the 2015 Library Technology Conference. The goal of these scholarships is to promote library technology proficiency and awareness. Each scholarship will cover conference registration (either single day or full 2-day registration fees), as well as one night lodging at one of the conference hotels for those travelling to the conference from outside the 7-county Twin Cities metro area.
- Any staff who currently works in a library or school media center in a city, town, or municipality with a population under 30,000 is welcome to apply.
- Special consideration will be given to persons who will be attending the Library Technology Conference for the first time and those from outside the 7-county Twin Cities metro area.
- Selection will largely be based on the brief (up to 300 words) statement of the expected benefits that the applicant will receive from conference attendance.
All scholarship applications must be received no later than Monday, December 1, 2014. Applications received after this date will not be considered.
