The 13th annual LibTech Conference will be held March 18-19, 2020, on the
campus of Macalester College in St. Paul, MN. The LibTech Conference
provides an opportunity for library professionals to come together to
discuss the changing technologies that are affecting how users interact
with libraries and to see how libraries are using technology to create new
and better ways to manage their resources. It provides a venue where
participants can learn skills or knowledge that they can take back and
adapt for use within their own library through a mix of sessions including
keynote presentations, traditional lecture-style concurrent sessions, panel
discussions, and hands-on workshops. Sessions are offered on a wide range
of topics and at varying skill levels. Anyone interested in the changing
technologies that are affecting libraries should plan to attend.
This year, we're also teaming up with Library Carpentry for a
pre-conference workshop March 16-17, 2020. Library Carpentry is a two-day,
hands-on workshop that introduces the fundamentals of data and computing
skills to people working in library- and information-related roles. Our
goal is to empower library staff to use computation and data in their own
work and to be advocates for efficient, effective, and reproducible data
and software practices.
Register for one or both at https://libtechconf.org/ today!
We look forward to seeing you in March at the 2020 LibTech Conference!
