Computers in Libraries conference

20Jan12

One of these days I am going to the Computers in Libraries conference. This year it is being held in Washington, D.C. in March. The programming covers mobile technology, content management, marketing, service innovations, streams for school libraries and special libraries.

Here are a few tantalizing sessions:

Getting to Yes after CIL (moving forward with negotiations between   IT department and library director);

Discovering Innovative Practices through Benchmarking (one of speakers is Kristin Vajs, Chief Librarian, Research Library, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System)

Tinkerers : Maker Culture & Libraries (how librarians can play a role in do-it-yourself community of  fabricators, coders, and educators who are dedicated to sharing information)

“Computers” is probably a misnomer.  I would add a tagline along the lines of librarians using technology in whatever form to deliver relevant and timely information to customers enhancing their knowledge base.
