Internet Librarian 2019

Join us this October in beautiful Monterey, California for three days of practical advice, inspiring thought leadership, and in-depth training. Join your peers to learn, share, and celebrate the disruptive trends shaping the future of libraries and information professionals. See where the information industry is going, and how to get there first.

Internet Librarians have been reaching out as never before to their various communities and providing an array of services through all kinds of channels. Now Internet Librarians are going beyond these amazing roles and service programs as Catalysts: Building Smart Campuses, Companies & Communities. Be there as we hear from extraordinary librarians and information professionals; look at new smart models; test new and emerging technology; and measure and communicate the impact of exciting new products and services they are creating and the groups and suppliers with whom they are partnering.
