This year’s Internet Librarian 2014 conference focuses on the strategies, services and tools that enable us to engage, connect and build relationships with the communities who use our libraries, fund our libraries, and support and defend our libraries. The program includes discussions about how the use of mobile devices and electronic collections is changing the spaces in libraries and the services libraries provide. It focuses on the skills, competencies, and roles that are evolving to deal with these and other changes in our towns, campuses, agencies and corporate enterprises. Information Today’s 17th annual Internet Librarian caters to all interests and all levels of knowledge with five simultaneous tracks, including Internet@Schools. The conference provides the ideal opportunity to gather insights and ideas to ignite our imaginations and spark innovation while it creates lots of opportunities for connections and conversations.

Join us at the most comprehensive conference for library and information professionals interested in technology to discover the insights, strategies and practices that allow us to push the envelope in expanding the net, managing libraries and digital information, and enhancing the information sharing and learning experience of people in our communities. Internet Librarian 2014 provides attendees with lots of opportunities to meet and hear from leading “movers and shakers” in the information industry in all types of environments – leaders in the information industry are integrating content and delighting their clients, organizing and managing digital content in creative ways, setting the context for excellence in information utilization in their organizations, revolutionizing the roles of info pros, building strong collaborative communities among their customers and colleagues, and using new technologies in exciting ways.
