Call for Speakers: Implementing Top Tech Trends for Public Libraries

I am organizing a track for Internet Librarian 2005, October 24-26, dedicated to implementing some of the top technology trends in public libraries. My emphasis: practical applications and useful ideas that attendees can take home and USE in their small or medium-sized public libraries (or boost what some of the BIG libraries are doing).

Are you a public librarian and implementing RFID? WiFi? A PL Blog with RSS? A Tech Training program that ROCKS? Let me know — Comment here!

Shoot me an e-mail (mstephens7 (at) or comment here and we’ll talk. The Submissions page is here.

FEEL FREE as well to use the comments on the post to weigh in on what you’d like to see during a fun filled day at Internet Librarian devoted to public library folk!

Stuff to be included for sure for your perusal and thoughts: technology training in PLs (staff and public), wrangling new tech such as RFID, Blogs, RSS, dealing with IT staff, Web site improvements and collaboartion amongst public librarians. There are more to ponder: help make this session what you want it to be!
