Call For Speakers For ILI 2010

Posted by Brian Kelly on 1 Mar 2010

I have spoken at all bar one of the Internet Librarian International (ILI) conferences and for a number of years have been a member of the ILI advisory group.  So I am pleased to announce that the call for speakers for the Internet Librarian International 2010 conference is now open. The theme for this year’s event, which will be held at the Novotel London West, London on 14-15 October 2010, is “Get real, stay relevant“.  The emphasis is, quite clearly, on the need for practical and implementable solutions which are relevant to the current economic climate.

The call to ‘get real’ does not mean a retreat from innovation, however. Rather the need to support today’s information challenges and changing users’ expectations may require a need to embrace innovation in order that libraries and other information professions continue to be relevant to their users.  Examples of such innovation might include mobile technologies and developments such as Augmented Reality.

If you do have an idea which you would be willing to share with others () please visit the call for speakers page – and as an abstract of up to 250 words is required, this should not be too onerous to do! And if you’d like to see what you are letting yourself in for, you can view last year’s programme.
