Library Journal's Technology Summit

Thanks to the No Shelf Required blog for this post about LJ's upcoming, day long, Technology Summit.

Thursday, December 8, 10:00am - 6:00pm EST.

Library Journal is now offering free registration (for individuals) to their upcoming online technology summit, Power to the Patrons: From Systems to Services. Registration also includes access to the tech summit archive for three months, so those who can’t stay for the entire day can log back in when they have more time. The code for free registration is TechSmt11MS (individuals only).

Here is more information about the program and registration:

Library Journal presents our first virtual technology summit, Power to the Patrons: From Systems to Services, an online forum to examine what technologies patrons are using, what technologies they want from their library, and how these technologies can help them discover their place and enhance their connection with the library.

This day-long conference offers a full program featuring keynote speaker Bryan Alexander, senior fellow at the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE), chair of the 2010 Horizon Report and author of The New Digital Storytelling, as well as panel presentations and Q&A with thought leaders from libraries around the country. Throughout the day, the industry’s leading vendors will showcase their latest innovations with presentations and webcasts throughout the show. And don’t forget to visit the Exhibit Hall for product demos and give-aways from our sponsors!

Plus, you can network with colleagues from across the nation and participate in our librarian moderated Twitter chat, all without leaving your office!
