Netspeed 2017 – Your Conference for Technology in Libraries
October 3 & 4, 2017
Lister Conference Centre, University of Alberta
Are you a maven of makerspaces? A master of UX?
Do you grok code?
Have you turned a $1.05 budget into a fully functioning computer lab? Conducted unique research on internet search skills and digital literacy? Investigated or implemented cutting-edge technology at your institution? Developed the perfect recipe to engage your patrons through social media?
Netspeed brings together library professionals from both academic and public libraries to discuss trends, developments, innovations, research, and practical matters related to library technologies. We provide sessions for different interests, uses, and levels of knowledge. We’re focused on creating a forum for discovery, collaboration, and conversation – an event where we can geek out about the latest exciting gadgets and hash through some of the tough social questions our work often generates.
If you work in or research libraries and have something to say or share about library technology, then we want to hear from you! Here is a list of some of the topics we’d love to hear about:
Don’t let this list limit you – we are open to hearing all proposals and topic suggestions!
Submissions are being collected via Google Forms. All proposals must be submitted no later than April 15, 2017. Submissions will be reviewed after this date. All successful applicants will be contacted by April 28.
Presenters will receive complimentary registration to Netspeed (no more than 2 complimentary registrations per presentation).
