Registration Open for Aug. 9. “Future of Indiana Public Libraries” Conference

The “Planning the Future of Indiana Public Libraries Conference” is on August 9. This conference is especially for directors, trustees, management and reference librarians. It is co-hosted by the ILF, IPLA, and MCLS. Cathy DeRosa of OCLC will begin with a presentation, followed by break-out sessions to tackle concepts gleaned from Ms. DeRosa’s presentation. Experienced facilitators will guide these small-group sessions which will include an analysis of topics and voting on top issues, followed by discussions and brainstorming.

Attendees will:
•   gain insight into “information consumers” and their online habits, preferences, and perceptions
•   learn how the current economic downturn has affected the information-seeking behaviors and how those changes are reflected in the use and perception of libraries
•   break into smaller groups and be guided by facilitators for discussion and brainstorming
•   participate by voting on key issues facing Indiana libraries
•   present an analysis and some solutions
•   determine next step to take the planning of the future of Indiana public libraries to the next level.

The registration price is $85 for ILF members and $125 for non-members. Lunch is included in the registration prices.
