INTERNET LIBRARIAN 2017 • October 23- 25, Monterey, CA

There IS a winning combination for Internet Librarians and their communities where the return on investment (ROI) is substantial. The magic includes our communities, our collections and how we work with both of those – close collaboration! This year we explore our relationship with:

• our communities – our customers, partners, suppliers and supporters
• our collections – our print and electronic materials, both in-house or global, as well as our supporting and experimental technologies
• our collaboration – our relationships and partnerships with our core communities as well as the broader world-wide information and GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) industries

Turning Students Into Readers With the LightSail Literacy Platform
by Brandi Scardilli
Even if we liked reading as a kid, we all have memories of slogging through at least one assignment that just wasn't speaking to us. (CliffsNotes is popular for a reason.)
