The World's Leading Technology Conference for Librarians

Join us this October in beautiful Monterey, California for three days of practical advice, inspiring thought leadership, and in-depth training. Join your peers to learn, share, and celebrate the disruptive trends shaping the future of libraries and information professionals. See where the information industry is going, and how to get there first.

There are so many positive possible futures for libraries in every community – campuses, municipalities, hospitals, schools, corporate and non-profit enterprises, governments, and more! The trick is to channel the passion that librarians have into building awareness and relationships in their communities; taking action and not waiting for citizens, students, researchers, business folks or faculty to come to them; creating and experimenting with innovative programs and services using new technologies; securing solid partnerships to expand programs and resources; and futurizing strong, collaborative and successful communities! Internet Librarian 2020 highlights how libraries are using artificial intelligence and machine learning to save time for new programs, dealing with big data to pinpoint insights, using sensors and other “internet of things” devices to improve and extend services, experimenting with augmented and virtual reality to delight their communities, tracking and sharing applications of smart technology with their campuses, organizations and neighborhoods. Internet Librarians never, however, lose sight of people in their communities as they futurize and transform to make sure they are relevant and valuable in their communities.

Internet Librarian caters to librarians and information professionals of all types and from all settings. No matter what your role is at your organization, you’ll find all of your bases covered at Internet Librarian. You can expect to leave Monterey with new friends and career allies and actionable advice and strategies for moving your organization forward. Please join us in this October for this career- and organization-changing opportunity.
