BEYOND LIBRARY 2.0:
Building Communities, Connections, & Strategies
Whether you call it Web 2.0, as first mentioned in 1999 but popularized by Tim O’Reilly in 2005, Web services, social media, or a new collaborative platform, social computing is enabling libraries and information professionals to interact with their clients and communities in new and exciting ways.

New tools and processes have ignited creative integrated content mashups, specialized and
personalized services for community segments, and exciting new techniques for dealing with voluminous information flows.

Our conference theme, Beyond Library 2.0, captures 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 strategies for the future beyond library 2.0. Hear from experts, practitioners, technologists and strategists—all from the information industry.

With four strong program streams, and three “conferences within a conference,” you can participate in sessions relating to information discovery and search, Web design and development, repositories and digital libraries, communities and collaboration, digital innovations and trends, government libraries, content management, learning, planning, public libraries, digital services and systems, search engines, special libraries, and more.

With more than 100 knowledgeable speakers in four simultaneous tracks plus three dynamic keynotes, pre- and postconference workshops, and an entertaining and informative evening program, CIL ’07 is a definite must-attend event. It caters to all interests and all levels of knowledge while providing many exciting networking opportunities — join speakers, authors, and fellow participants in refreshment breaks, informal dinner groups, receptions, and more.

Workshops
Two academies are featured—popular, 1-day intensive updates by industry leaders—covering the latest searching tips by experts in the field, and key hot topics for Web managers. Workshops are offered Sunday, April 15 and Thursday, April 19. Topics include Web 2.0, technology planning, taxonomies and ontologies, blogging, wikis, project management, creating online tutorials, federated searching, digitization, gaming and libraries, mining blogs and RSS for research, social tools, integrating RSS into your Web site, organization charts and structures for a 2.0 world, IM reference service, teaching Web search skills, podcasting and videocasting, search engine optimization for libraries, and more!
