Lighthearted and entertaining, but also educational and insightful, this evening is an overview of what was and what was envisioned 20 years ago contrasted with the realities of 2016. It looks at the inaugural 1997 Internet Librarian program topics, speakers, and exhibitors and features comments from original participants; discusses topics and themes that have endured; remembers products and services that no longer exist; and much more! It touches on what customers were exploring and how that contrasts with today, how we are doing business differently today, and what this tells us today and for the future. Join us for a wonderful evening and also crowd source your photos and memories from Internet Librarian events during the past 20 years.
