CIL 2017 Early Bird extended & SWON has a discount, too!

Computers in Libraries? Sure, we all know about those. But despite the name, CIL might cover more than you think! I know many people who return to this popular 3-day event near Washington, DC every year and always have great things to say about it. The conference includes opportunities for you to "join speakers, authors, and fellow participants in breaks, informal dinner groups, receptions, and more."

This year's theme is "Upping Our Game: Taking Libraries to New Heights with Technology." CIL will feature sessions that show how libraries can implement "strategies, learning, training, partnering, out-of- the-box thinking" and how to borrow strategies from other industries to help them excel.

"Whether it’s building creative spaces with learning commons and makerspaces; engaging audiences in different ways with community managers and embedded librarians; advocating for learning and literacy in new and exciting ways; using new technologies to provide engaging services and apps; partnering with museums or chambers of commerce; Computers in Libraries 2017 is all about Upping Our Game: Taking Libraries to New Heights with Technology."

CIL encourages library professionals of all types to attend - from IT to public librarians, from directors to researchers. Learn more at computersinlibraries.infotoday.com/2017, but don't register just yet!  

Before you do, contact us at info@swonlibraries.org for a discount that will get you up to 75% off, depending on the package you select. Furthermore, Early Bird Pricing has been extended to March 10th, so if you were planning on attending and haven't yet registered, now's the time to contact us and register fast!

Enjoy CIL!

Putting out Big Fires: How to Prepare for Unexpected Problems

   

SWON is pleased to be able to provide PCI Webinars to our Supporting Members for free (and to Geographic Members and everyone else at a reduced price).

Next up: "Putting out Big Fires: How to Prepare for Unexpected Problems. As librarians, we are constantly juggling project and service planning along with our day-to-day activities. That’s why it’s so easy to be surprised by unexpected, difficult events like the death or major illness of a staff member, the failure of a major technology system, or damage to the building.

At times like these, the entire staff must pull together to get through. The last thing you want is to be unprepared.

PCI Webinar - Putting out Big Fires
FREE for employees of Supporting Member Institutions
$20 for members in our Ohio service area
$25 for everyone else
