developing, and embracing Net- and
Web-based strategies in their roles as

Web 2.0 refers to Web services, social
media, or a new interactive, participatory
platform of social computing. It 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, including user-generated
content. Our conference theme, 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, radical new ideas for roles and values of information
professionals, 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 the insights, strategies, and practices that will allow us to tame the Net, manage libraries and
digital information, and enhance the information and learning experiences of people in our communities. Internet Librarian 2007 provides attendees with many chances to meet and hear from leading-edge information
professionals in all types of environments — leaders in the information industry who are integrating content
and delighting their clients, organizing and managing digital content in creative ways, setting the context
for excellence in information utilization in their organizations, revolutionizing the roles of info pros, building
strong collaborative communities among their customers and colleagues, and using new technologies in creative
and exciting ways.
