The 2008 MS Library 2.0 Summit is accepting proposals for "Steal-this-Idea" speakers and poster sessions through April 25th. The "Steal-this-Idea" sessions will be one-hour in length, including time for discussion. Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals that share their own experiences applying 2.0 technologies in public, k-12, college, community college, university or special libraries. We encourage, but do not require, hands-on elements to be included in the "Steal-this-Idea" sessions. Please submit 150-200 word summaries for speaker or poster sessions to apowers@library.msstate.edu before 5pm on April 25, 2008.

Registration begins April 28, 2008, but the blogging has already begun! Find out more at the Summit website: http://library.msstate.edu/mslibrarysummit.
