Libraries are all about action. No more waiting for citizens, students, researchers, business folks or faculty to come to them, libraries create innovative programs and services that are integrated, catalytic converters for individuals or groups – large or small. Libraries are exploring artificial intelligence to deal with big data and pinpoint insights; using sensors and other “internet of things” devices to improve and extend their services and programs; tracking and sharing applications of smart technology with their campuses, organizations and neighborhoods. Internet Librarians are never, however, losing sight of people by engaging those who inhabit their campuses and communities, building amazing trusted partnerships with diverse groups, and using data collected through smart connected campuses and communities. Libraries are definitely at the center as catalysts and anchors of smart environments – working to solve some of the world’s largest challenges -- and Internet Librarians are the driving force!

Internet Librarians have been reaching out as never before to their various communities whether they are indigenous people, investment bankers, students, government policy makers, families, researchers, lawyers or doctors, and providing an array of services to these communities through numerous channels: bricks and mortar libraries, buses, digital platforms, classrooms, makerspaces, face to face, and more. Now Internet Librarians are going beyond these amazing roles and service programs as Catalysts: Building Smart Campuses, Companies & Communities. Be there as we hear from extraordinary librarians and their colleagues; look at new smart models; test new and emerging technology; measure and communicate the impact of exciting new products and services they are creating and the groups and suppliers with whom they are partnering.

Join us at the most 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. Internet Librarian 2019 provides attendees with lots of opportunities to meet and hear from leading “movers and shakers” in the information industry 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, colleagues, and partners, as well as using new technologies in exciting ways. This conference encourages you to bring and share your ideas and champion new practices – this is where ideas and action come together, catalysts are born, and where innovation ignites.
