Featured Keynote: “Faking the Internet,” by Michael Edson, Smithsonian Institution’s Director of Web and New Media Strategy. Why don’t libraries get better the more they are used? Not just a little better—exponentially better, like the Internet. They could, and, in a society facing colossal challenges, they must, but we won’t get there without confronting a few taboos about what a library is, who it’s for, and who’s in charge. Keynote 12:30 pm Central on June 19th.
Responsive Web Design: Jason Clark (Montana State University), Doug Furiato (Florida’s Ask a Librarian and the Tampa Bay Library Consortium), and Matthew Reidsma (Grand Valley State University Libraries) 11:00 a.m. Central on June 19th.
Mobile Reference: Ann Owens (Sacramento Public Library), Laura Kohl, (Bryant University), Heather Westhaver (Burlington (Ontario) Public Library) and Nancy Huling (University of Washington) 1:30 pm Central on June 19th.
Creating Videos at Your Library. Toby Greenwalt (Skokie Public Library), Meagan Kinsley (American University), Anali Perry and Matt Harp (Arizona State University), Angela Nolet (King County Library System) 3:00 pm Central on June 19th.
Day 2 includes an essential workshop on MakerSpaces will be led by Tod Colegrove (University of Nevada, Reno).
