Forwarding from Steve Hargadon:
Please join us for the third annual global conversation about the future of libraries: October 18-19, 2013, http://www.library2013.com.
The conference is once again being held entirely online around the clock in multiple languages and time zones. Everyone is invited to participate in this FREE forum designed to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing among information professionals worldwide.
We have 146 accepted conference sessions and ten keynote addresses. There are eight conference strands covering a wide variety of timely topics, such as, MOOCs, e-books, maker spaces, mobile services, embedded librarians, green libraries, doctoral student research, library and information center “tours,” and more! The current schedule in US-Eastern Daylight Time is below; hour-by-hour session schedules for all of the world’s major time zones are published on the site and you should use those for the most current information.
To be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, please join the Library 2.0 network. You do not need to join this network to attend, but doing so will also allow you to correspond with the presenters and other members, and to comment on sessions and discussions. All conference sessions will be recorded and become available immediately after the conference (as are the past two year’s conference sessions). The “Connected Librarians” pre-conference day was this past Monday, and the recordings of those sessions are now available online at http://www.connectedlibrarians.com.
See full listing in your own time zone, with session detail and links, HERE.
