We are pleased to present the 11th 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.

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.

We look forward to seeing you in Monterey in October!
