Changing the Way Libraries Do Business: Meeting the Challenges of the Web 2.0 World

Come hear five experts who wished for change and then made it happen, through Web 2.0 technologies and more. You’ll walk away from this day-long session, co-sponsored by OCLC Eastern and SOLINET, with practical information you can implement immediately at your library.

Speakers include:
