The Excitement is Brewing for the Library 2.013 Conference
Library 2.013 Worldwide Virtual Conference October 18-19, 2013

The dates are set for the Library 2.013 Worldwide Virtual Conference. The third annual global conversation about the future of libraries is scheduled for October 18-19, 2013. The conference will once again be held entirely online around the clock in multiple languages and time zones. Everyone is invited to participate in this FREE forum designed to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing among information professionals worldwide.

This year, there will be eight conference strands covering a wide variety of timely topics such as, MOOCs, e-books, maker spaces, mobile services, embedded librarians, green libraries, and more! Doctoral students will also have their own strand for presenting their research. Plus, there will be a new strand dedicated to virtual library tours.

In addition, building upon the Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference opening keynote presentation by Dr. Sandra Hirsh, professor and director at the San José State University School of Library and Information Science, there’ll be a strand dedicated to the evolving roles and opportunities for information professionals.

You can view all the conference strands in detail on the Library 2.013 website. Pinterest fans are also encouraged to follow the Library 2.013 Pinterest board.
