Libraries are all about communities, about bringing people and resources together for learning, growing and entertainment.  In addition to looking at emerging technologies and hearing from leading edge practitioners, we'll focus on case studies from innovative libraries, so participants can apply what they learn at the conference directly within their communities. 

Join us at Computers in Libraries 2015 to help us celebrate 30 years of success!
