Internet Librarian 2018
INTERNET LIBRARIAN 2018 - COMMUNITY PARTNERS: BEYOND OUTREACH!

Internet Librarians have been reaching out as never before to their various communities whether they are indigenous people, investment bankers, students, government policy makers, families, researchers, lawyers or doctors, and they provide an array of services to these communities through numerous channels: bricks and mortar libraries, buses, digital platforms, classrooms, makerspaces, face to face, and more.

Now Internet Librarians are going beyond these amazing roles and service programs to get to the heart of their communities, to be integral to the success of their communities. Join us as we hear from extraordinary librarians and their communities, look at new community models, and see what exciting products and services they are creating and the suppliers with whom they are partnering.
