ABOUT LIBTECH

The 10th annual Library Technology Conference will be held March 15-16, 2017, on the campus of Macalester College in St. Paul, MN.

The LibTech Conference provides an opportunity for library professionals to come together to discuss the changing technologies that are affecting how users interact with libraries and to see how libraries are using technology to create new and better ways to manage their resources. It provides a venue where participants can learn skills or knowledge that they can take back and adapt for use within their own library through a mix of sessions including keynote presentations, traditional lecture-style concurrent sessions, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops.  Sessions are offered on a wide range of topics and at varying skill levels. Anyone interested in the changing technologies that are affecting libraries should plan to attend.

Library staff and technologists from as many as 150 institutions are expected to attend the 2017 conference. While the conference attracts a majority of its attendees from the Midwest region (Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, South Dakota and North Dakota), it is also expected that a significant number will be attending from around the United States, as well as from Canada. In previous years, the highest percentage of attendees have come from academic libraries, but we also had a high number of participants from public libraries. A smaller number of attendees have come from school (K-12) and special libraries.  The total number of conference participants will be limited to no more than 500 in order to help ensure a quality conference experience for all and to help facilitate the interactive and hands-on nature of many of the sessions.  Last year registration for the Library Technology Conference filled within a few hours.  Registration usually opens in early December.

  


  • Costs:   Final registration fee is still being determined.  We anticipate costs for the 2017 conference will be approximately  $90 for single day and $160 for the full two-day conference.
  • Lodging: Blocks of rooms will be set aside at two conference hotels.  Both hotels will provide shuttle service to the conference.
