Terrific Library 2.0.14

This is a GREAT week for library learning and conversations! (Forward this email to friends and colleagues.)

Tomorrow, October 7th, our second annual “Connected Librarian Day” preconference kicks off at 3:30pm US-Eastern Daylight Time, led by Britten Follett, Joyce Valenza, Ross Todd, and Shannon Miller. Don’t miss eight great sessions, all free, all listed below, and with lots more detail at

Then our fourth annual (and free) Future of Libraries conference, Library 2.014, starts on Wednesday, October 8th, at 10:00am US-Eastern Time with the opening keynote by conference co-chair Dr. Sandra Hirsh from the School of Information at San José State University. There has been a real excitement for this years event, and our conference network reached over 20,000 registered members this past week! While all the details of the two days and the 100+ conference sessions, keynotes, and distinguished speaker presentations are on the Library 2.014 conference site, a quick listing is below to get you thinking about which sessions you might be able to attend live. While attending the live sessions allows you to participate in live chat with the presenter and other attendees, don’t forget that all of the sessions are also recorded and available for free (and forever) on the conference site.

The current complete schedule is below. Go to for the conference hour-by-hour schedule in your own time zone and for the actual links to attend each session. The keynote speakers presentation descriptions and bios are at And if you speak Hungarian, you’ll notice we have ten special Hungarian sessions that start early the morning of the 8th. :)

Please do help us promote the conference as widely as possible. Forward this email if you can. Sample tweets and blog posts are also at the bottom of this email, below the schedule. Thank you in advance for your support--you help keep these types of events free! The hastag for Connected Librarian Day is #cld14 and for the full conference is #lib2014.

See you online!
