Internet Librarian 2002 Conference and Exhibition Goes to Palm Springs this November

March 25, 2002, Medford, NJ — Information Today, Inc. (ITI), a key provider of technology conferences for more than 20 years, is pleased to announce that the 6th annual Internet Librarian conference and exhibition will take place November 4 – 6, 2002 at the Palm Springs Convention Center in Palm Springs, California. Internet Librarian is a comprehensive conference and exhibition designed to meet the needs of librarians, information managers, systems professionals, researchers and information specialists.

These days everything is changing. In 2001, over 10 percent of domain names disappeared. Companies are merging or ceasing to exist. Many providers of free services are changing their business models and becoming fee-based. And, since 9/11, much information has simply vanished from the Web. Staying afloat with all these changes is very challenging, but Internet Librarian 2002 can help.  This year’s theme, Navigating in Turbulent Waters, focuses programming on finding safe harbors and places for Internet librarians to anchor.

Internet Librarian 2002, including Internet@Schools 2002, caters to all interests and levels of knowledge within four simultaneous tracks and many workshops.
