Conference Theme: "Academic Libraries: Now and Tomorrow."

As we finish the first decade of the 21st century, we find ourselves facing a number of challenges: For example, the economic situation is forcing stagnant or declining budgets. Technological changes are coming at a breakneck pace, and we are racing to keep up. Our patrons, students, faculty, staff, and communities, are also facing these challenges, and we are working out new service models to help them meet their goals. I'm sure you can think of many other situations and opportunities in the context of your work and your library.

This year there are no pre-determined tracks, and we have kept the theme as broad as possible. We want to hear from everyone: public and technical services, library students, staff and faculty. What interests you, now and for the future? What new services do you provide? What new research are you engaged in? What new technologies have you implemented? What do you think is happening now that will change how we do things tomorrow?

Please consider sharing your experiences or research, as broadly or as specifically as you would like, so that we can learn from each other as we head into the next decade of the 21st century and beyond.
