Internet Librarian International 2006

Hi everyone! It has been far too long since I have blogged anything. Life has gotten in the way!

Anyway, I just had a notice that the Internet Librarian International 2006 conference programme will be published this week. ILI2006 takes place in London October 16-17th.

From the notice:

This year's dual themes for Internet Librarian International - discovering new resources and demystifying new technology - reflect the concerns of information professionals worldwide.

Opening with a Keynote about the knowledge glut and how it affects librarians and information managers, this year’s Internet Librarian International concentrates on practical applications for internet technologies. Speakers explain how they implement new technologies, adopt Library 2.0 techniques, employ management skills, collaborate with colleagues and bring information to remote areas.

Through a range of panel discussions, master classes, formal speeches and networking opportunities, Internet Librarian International provides a unique educational opportunity for all those who need to find new resources and understand new technology.

This conference, and the Internet Librarian conference held in Monterey, always sound fabulous. I can't wait to see the full programme. Reading programmes for me is a bit like reading cookbooks. I may not actually cook something up, but it is certainly fun to dream...
