Macalester Welcomes LibTech 2010 Attendees

On March 17-18, 2010, Macalester’s Library and Media Services will host the third annual Library Technology Conference on the Macalester campus. The event provides an opportunity for library professionals from around the region and the country to come together to discuss the technologies that affect library services; to see examples of what libraries are doing with these technologies; and to allow participants to learn specific skills or knowledge that they can take back and adapt for use within their own library. The conference offers two full days of keynote and concurrent sessions. Nearly 400 library professionals will attend LibTech 2010. For more information about the conference, visit the Library Technology Conference web site or contact
