The Fourth International m-libraries Conference 2012

The  m-libraries conference this year runs from 24-26 September 2012 at the Open University, UK.

This year is  main theme for the “From margin to mainstream: mobile technologies transforming lives and libraries”

Mobile technology has transformed so many aspects of our lives: how we work, how we communicate, how we study and how we play. Since the first successful M-libraries conference in 2007, libraries around the world have made huge advances in harnessing the technology to improve and enhance their services.  The Fourth conference will bring together researchers, technical developers, managers and library practitioners to review achievements to date and consider the creative challenges and opportunities ahead.

Internet Librarian

I am excited about speaking at Internet Librarian International 12  I will be hearing from information professionals and practising librarians as they share their experiences about their creative projects, innovative solutions and practical implementation strategies.

I know I’ll come back with updated skills and ideas on new approaches, products and technology for finding, organising and managing information resources.

For me it is a real opportunity to step back,  be reawakened, renewed and refresh my ideas and thinking.
