ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The 2009 Library Technology Conference will be held March 18th and 19th, 2009, on the campus of Macalester College in St. Paul, MN.

The conference grew out of a very successful Midwest Library Technology conference held in St. Paul, MN in May 2008 which attracted about 250 participants from five states. This year's conference is again intended to provide an opportunity for librarians to come together to discuss the technologies that are affecting library services; to see examples of what libraries are doing with these technologies; and to allow participants to learn specific skills or knowledge that they can take back and adapt for use within their own library.

This conference should be attended by library staff and the technologists who support them. Sessions will be offered on a wide range of topics and at varying skill levels. Anyone interested in the changing technologies that are affecting libraries should plan to attend.
