CFP: Internet Librarian - Monterey California (October 26-28, 2015)

Internet Librarian
Monterey California
October 26-28, 2015



Libraries are part of a larger information and learning, knowledge sharing, ecosystem whether they operate within a community, campus or organization. They are part of what we are calling here the “info service biz”. And even if they are in the non-profit world, libraries and internet librarians need to operate like businesses and learn from business practices. This year, we will focus on the new roles and directions that information professionals are taking within the “info service biz”. Internet librarians use their skills not only in libraries, but also in many organizations and in many functions – search engines, corporate communications, business development, and IT. Internet librarians are pushing the boundaries and creating new directions for their services.

Organized and produced by Information Today, Inc., Internet Librarian 2015 will emphasize the exciting, creative and innovative ways that information professionals are forging new roles and directions in information service, learning, knowledge sharing and more in the changing social and technological world we live in today. It reflects the strategies, services and tools that enable internet librarians to engage, connect and build relationships with their communities. It discusses mobile devices and electronic collections and how their use is changing the spaces and services in libraries. It highlights the skills, competencies, and roles that are evolving to deal with all these changes in our communities, campuses and organizations.

As a speaker, we invite you to join us for a comprehensive conference for library and information professionals interested in technology to discover the insights, strategies and practices that allow us to push the envelope in expanding the net, building solid connections to the Internet of Things, managing libraries and digital information, and enhancing the information sharing and learning experience of people in our communities.

Attendees want to learn about leading edge tools and techniques for grabbing the attention of their audience and community. Attendees want to meet and hear from leading “movers and shakers” in the information industry or “info service biz” in all types of environments – leaders in the information industry are integrating content and delighting their clients, organizing and managing digital content in creative ways, setting the context for excellence in information utilization in their organizations, revolutionizing the roles of info pros, creating new learning and discovery areas with makerspaces, building strong collaborative communities among their customers and colleagues, and using new technologies in exciting ways.


Internet Librarian 2015 caters to all interests and all levels of knowledge with five simultaneous tracks, including Internet@Schools, plus many workshop and networking opportunities. Our programming provides an ideal opportunity to gather insights and ideas to ignite imaginations and spark innovation while creating lots of opportunities for connections and conversations.
