Don't know what Access is? I didn't either until I heard about it recently from an attendee. Here is the description:
The conference is an eclectic group of technically savvy people who get together every year to share fresh challenges, projects and solutions related to advances in information and library communities.
It is a single stream conference with limited attendance, which provides ample opportunity to meet and exchange ideas.
Common touchstones at the conference include:
- customized web applications and search interfaces
- open source software
- national and provincial consortiae initiatives
- information policy
- digital media
- library catalogue innovations
- end user searching behaviours
It is Canadian based and seems to have had conferences since 1997. Sounds right up my alley! I hope to spend some more time exploring the site and listening to the sessions.
