Net Initiatives For Tough Times: Digital Publishing, Preservation & Practices

We live and work in challenging times. How can our digital practices solve our current dilemmas? Internet pioneer, Vint Cerf, who has been called one of the "Fathers of the Internet" and is currently VP & Chief Internet Evangelist at Google, believes that the Internet and WWW are still young, yet are "poised to become the greatest communications platform humanity has ever known." Cerf is the opening keynote speaker at Internet Librarian 2009 and begins the discussions of our conference theme, ‘Net Initiatives for Touch Times: Digital Publishing, Preservation & Practices. This theme emphasizes creative and innovative Internet techniques and practices being used in library and information services to meet today's challenges -- the many creative ways in which information is published, accessed and shared by libraries, information professionals and their communities. The conference highlights leading edge practices for connecting, communicating, learning, innovating and more. It focuses on exciting new initiatives and innovations in all types of information enterprises, tools and techniques for enhancing user-friendly digital information flows, fresh ideas for traditional and emerging 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.

Join us at the most comprehensive conference for library and information professionals interested in technology to discover the insights, strategies and practices that allow us to push the envelope in expanding the net, manage libraries and digital information, and enhance the information sharing and learning experience of people in our communities.
