Annual Conference

Early Bird Registration Now Available for the LILRC 20th Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future

October 27th & 28th, Dowling College
Extinction is Not an Option: Ensuring OUR Future

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the LILRC Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future. What a better time than now to take a look back at where we’ve been in order to explore where we’re going. Our first Annual Conference explored the theme of “Access to Information: Paradigms for the Future,” in which strategic visions of library services were explored. Thru the years, the LILRC Annual Conference has delved into timely topics including virtual reality, the library of the future, cyberstudents, einformation and e-libraries, access in the digital age, information commons, and much more.

As we reflect on the past and look to the future, the conference theme chosen for this year, “Extinction is Not an Option: Ensuring OUR Future” will mark 20 years of what hopes to be innovative and inspiring speakers, an engaging learning experience, and an opportunity to network with colleagues. And so, we would invite you to mark your calendars and take advantage of early bird rates for registration.

We’ll kick off Thursday night with a guest speaker from the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and follow-up on Friday with three distinguished speakers including:

James G. Neal, Vice President for Information Services and University Librarian, Columbia University

Eli Neiburger, Associate Director, IT and Production, Ann Arbor District Library

Michael Porter, Community Product Manager, WebJunction, OCLC

We look forward to seeing many of you on October 27th & 28th, at DowlingCollege, Fortunoff Hall.
