Libraries are at the forefront of experimenting with and adopting new technology, but are they as focused on their clients as they are on technology? New tools and processes have ignited creative content mashups, specialized and personalized services for community segments, and exciting new techniques for dealing with voluminous information flows. Now user generated content in conjunction with new tools is shaping the new information world. What new horizons will we find with the integration of “high tech and high touch”? What innovation and change will 2008 bring?

Our conference theme, Innovative Change: Integrating High Tech with High Touch, focuses on how libraries excel when technology advancements match the people capabilities. It highlights leading edge online initiatives and innovations in all types of information enterprises, tools and techniques for enhancing user-friendly digital information flows, information discovery and visualization methods for dealing with today’s information overload, building new communities and supporting online connections in engaging ways, and more. Join us at the most comprehensive conference for library and information professionals interested in technology to discover insights, strategies and practices that will allow us to manage computers, libraries, digital information, and people in a cohesive, exciting, and productive way.
