Computers in Libraries 2013

Evolving in New Directions

We are pleased to present the 28th annual Computers in Libraries—the most comprehensive North American conference and exhibition on all aspects of library and information delivery technology. Although the tools and technology available to libraries and information services have changed over the years, the excellent quality and range of both topics and speakers at Computers in Libraries 2013 remain the same.

With small steps and big leaps libraries and information organizations are evolving in new and exciting ways. The fast changing technology and social trends are fuelling this evolution in both exciting and scary ways. Computers, spaces, library and information services are all evolving in different, and mostly positive, directions. This year's Computers in Libraries 2013 theme focuses on mobile devices and electronic collections and how their use is changing the spaces and services in libraries. It focuses on the skills, competencies, and roles that are evolving to deal with all these changes in our communities, campuses and organizations. Opportunities abound but taking risks and trying new and different things is always a challenge. Computers in Libraries 2013 shares how leading edge libraries and information services are evolving, managing and excelling. Register today and as an attendee get lots of ideas and insights for jumpstarting your evolution strategies! And, of course, take advantage of the many networking events to meet and learn more from speakers and colleagues!



Pre- and post-conference workshops on Sunday, April 7 and Thursday, April 11 cover a wide range of topics, including our popular full-day Searchers Academy and Drupal in a Day. There are many half day workshop topics: cool tools for web managers, measuring library impact, designing library space, user experience, change & customer engagement, digital repositories, mobile developments, ebooks, teens, social media, working with IT, planning and managing gadgets, screencasting, and more!
