NOTHIN’ BUT NET @ Internet Librarian 2004
Starring Info Pros in Content, Context, & Communities

We are pleased to present the eighth annual Internet Librarian conference and exhibition—the ONLY conference designed for information professionals who are using, developing, and embracing Net and Web-based strategies in their roles as information searchers, Webmasters and Web managers, content evaluators and organizers, product developers, and more. As the premier tools for information managers and librarians, Net technologies are the focus of this conference. It provides an active forum for our excellent speakers to explore the exciting range of issues and challenges facing information professionals today as well as an opportunity for you to network with other leading-edge Internet librarians.

The Internet is our backbone and it continues to provide us with opportunities to streamline our operations, improve and enhance our customer relationships, develop new applications, and more. Keeping up with the new tools and techniques is always a challenge but Internet Librarian 2004 definitely meets that challenge, especially with the Info Pros Stars featured in our program. Our 8th annual Internet Librarian conference is a mixture of leading-edge ideas, tools, expert speakers, practical tips and exciting new events—all focused on information professionals and Internet-related technologies.

IL 2004 features four keynote sessions; 100 plus dynamic speakers in four simultaneous tracks plus two days of Internet@Schools West, many in-depth learning events and workshops, a fun and informative evening session, cybertours, and communities of interest. We look forward to seeing you in Monterey in November!

The Internet Librarian 2004 exhibition features leading edge companies, offering visitors a choice of products covering all aspects of Internet technologies, including content providers, online services, software, document and Web delivery systems, search engines, and more. If you’re looking for Net solutions, evaluating competing systems, keeping up-to- date with the newest Net products and developments, be sure to visit the Internet Librarian 2004 exhibition.
