Connected Librarian Day Oct 7th

The Learning Revolution

Conference Kudos

The Library 2.013 collaboration is a grand example of emerging community on a global scale. Both the session topics and the very act of connecting to professional colleagues around the globe brings fresh perspectives and vibrancy to the world of ideas and information.
– Craig Seasholes

Library 2.0 is an incredible event that I hope to be part of in the future! Having participated as a presenter and moderator (both for the first time this year), it was exhilarating to interact with colleagues from all over the world.
– Rose Flores Medlock

It's awesome! I am a full time manager and a full time student so I can only access to much of this given the other parameters of my life at this time. Recordings being available is invaluable! This kind of conference being presented by SJSU SLIS shows how much of an industry leader they are. I'm proud to be earning my MLIS at SJSU!  
– Ellen Holt

I can't thank you enough for this conference. Our library does not have the funding to send us to conferences and even online webinars can be expensive. This conference is not only free but the ability to hear from people around the world is priceless.
– Lori

Really useful and really enjoyable as a presenter, moderator or just like a simple visitor as well. You can get many kind of valuable experiences from all over the world and build connections – for free!
