*APOLOGIES FOR ANY DUPLICATION.*
Access is Canada’s premier library technology conference, bringing together
librarians, technicians, developers, and programmers to discuss
cutting-edge library technologies. This is the 22nd year of Access and
we’re thrilled to bring the conference to Toronto, Ontario! AccessYYZ will
be held at the beautiful Bram and Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto
Reference Library from September 8-11, 2015.
This year, we’re looking for the most innovative and creative ways that
tech has been or could be implemented in your library – whether it’s big,
small, or completely theoretical! Are you using a Raspberry Pi to build
custom hardware? How might linked open data changing your day-to-day
library services in the future? Have you been working to foster a renewed
culture of tech exploration among your staff? We want to hear all about it!
We would especially love to see proposals from public libraries, special
libraries, and other places outside the ivory tower that are using library
technologies in new and innovative ways.
In time-honoured Access tradition, we want to take advantage of the
flexibility of single track conference planning by letting you propose your
preferred session length and format. Let us know if you want to do a
traditional talk, a poster presentation, a demo, Pecha Kucha, a lightning
talk, a panel of experts or something completely different. Be creative!
