Of Technology.  We are accepting session proposals for this year's

of the library experience and the Netspeed conference addresses this
convergence of people and technology.*

*We offer learning experiences that include lectures, discussion,
technology demonstrations, resource and equipment vendors, forums for
conversation, and more.  Presenters have the opportunity to address a wide
range of delegates, boost their professional profile, and participate in
engaged knowledge sharing.*

*We are seeking 50 minute presentations that address the following areas of

         Transforming library service through technology

         Emerging technology trends affecting the nature of library work

         The role libraries can play in the evolving connection economy

         Newly licensed resources, websites, apps, and collaboration tools

         Marketing, metrics, and methods for evaluating digital impact

         Innovative strategies to build digital and information literacy

Do you have a great idea for a topic not listed above?  We welcome
proposals for sessions outside of our recommended areas of focus.  Formats
such as demonstrations, hands-on workshops, panels, facilitated discussions
and group strategy development are encouraged.
