We are pleased to present the 10th 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. Internet Librarian 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.

Nothin' But Net @ Internet Librarian 2006!
Wikipedia defines “mashup” as a Web site or Web application that seamlessly combines content from more than one source into an integrated experience. Internet librarians do just that for their clients, so it is a fitting theme for Information Today, Inc.’s 10th Internet Librarian. This year’s conference focuses on the challenges of Web 2.0 as well as the leading-edge solutions for balancing content access, new technologies, and client demands for an integrated experience. As
the San Francisco Chronicle puts it, “Take a pinch of Yahoo! or Google. Then stir in some census data, photographs or crime statistics. What you get is a mash-up.” Combining ingredients from different online sources to create hybrids is a hot Internet phenomenon, especially when map or demographic information and a variety of feeds are used. Join us for Internet Librarian’s 10th anniversary and see what Internet librarians and information professionals are doing to create integrated experiences and compelling content mashups in their organizations and communities.

Internet Librarian 2006
