Internet Librarian International is the innovation and technology conference for information professionals.

The conference attracts hundreds of library and information professionals from around the world with an emphasis on case studies and the exchange of ideas and experience.

Our focus this year: Smart Solutions to Real Challenges

The conference will explore how innovative information professionals and services can make a real difference in the lives of clients and end users - whether they are individuals or organisations. Access to information, data and knowledge is becoming more open and transparent, with partnerships and new social media contexts expanding knowledge sharing in new and surprising ways. Against a background of fast-changing technology, new business models, changing user expectations and squeezed budgets, how are librarians and information professionals delivering innovative and imaginative products and services?

We are looking for speakers and panellists from all types of libraries - public, academic, government, national or commercial - as well as those working outside a 'traditional' library setting.

This is your chance to share your expertise, make connections and benefit from the insights and experiences of others.

The Call for Speakers has 4 main categories:

See below for further ideas under each of these key themes. But don’t let this limit your imagination - we invite participation from a wide range of professionals from all over the world to share success stories and lessons learned. How are you developing and delivering transformative information services and products?
