The Library Technology Conference provides a mix of sessions highlighting many of the technologies affecting how users interact with libraries and how libraries are using technology to create new and better ways to manage resources. Sessions are geared toward all types of libraries, they include a wide range of topics and they are aimed at staff of varying skill levels. Anyone that is interested in the changing technologies that are affecting libraries should plan to attend.
