Netspeed will be taking place in just a couple of weeks, and time is
running out to register for the best all-around library technologies
conference in western Canada!

Netspeed 2017 is the conference for librarians who love to tech. We’re
going to be gathering at the University of Alberta on October 3 & 4 for two
days of sharing, networking, learning, and more.

We’ve got a great line-up of speakers and sessions, featuring keynote
speakers Jessamyn West and Sean Gouglas, along with sessions with topics
ranging from innovations in metadata, practical analytics, program
development, and even the forthcoming rise of the robots. Sessions address
topics for a variety of tech skill levels and needs, with talks for library
staff who work behind-the-scenes, on the front line, in leadership and
management, who are up to their elbows in code, or who are the human
interface between their library patrons and the tech world.

What’s more, this conference is accessible and affordable. *Library
professionals, para-professionals, staff, and librarians-in-training can
register for just $254.* Vendors and company sales representatives can join
us for just $500.
