Deadline is September 14, 2018

Libraries are leading the way in engaging users, and not just with games & gadgets, makerspaces, web sites, search interfaces, and digital literacy. They are achieving community goals with technology, developing real partnerships with other community leaders, applying technology for the common good and to meet the UN’s sustainable development goals for the world, collaborating with diverse groups and people, expanding learning roles and programs and so much more. Computers in Libraries 2019 shares library successes and strategies with User Engagement in the Digital Age. It looks at our models, transformational technologies, creative processes, innovative practices and customer-delighting programs that are having strong and long-lasting impacts on our communities, the world, and the people in them.

Hear from excellent and innovative libraries, network and learn from leaders in the field, and definitely be an active participant in the 34th Computers in Libraries -- the most comprehensive North American conference and exhibition concentrating on all aspects of library technology. The conference offers a multifaceted program designed to meet the needs of librarians, community and information managers, systems professionals, eresource managers, researchers, webmasters and web managers, content curators, digital strategists, and information specialists.

It provides the latest information and practices for you to make informed choices for your community -- whether it is an academic, corporate, non-profit, public, or school library community.
