Access 2011: Call for Submissions

Access is Canada’s premier library technology conference. The theme for Access 2011 is “the Library is Open”, exploring ideas and initiatives around open data, open standards, open source software, open access publishing, and open archives. We are also open to your ideas, this year inviting calls for submissions.

Tell us about a project you’ve rolled out, show us a prototype, or present a new way of thinking about things. Success stories are great but we’re also interested in near misses – what went wrong and what was learned? We’re after good stories about technology in a manner that challenges, entertains, and inspires discussion.

Not a librarian or from the library field? We’d love to hear how your work benefits libraries in all sectors. We’re also hoping to hear more from  public, school or special libraries this year in addition to academic libraries. Sessions range from 30 minutes to 45 minutes. The final program will be a combination of selected submissions and invited speakers.

Deadline for submissions is March 31, 2011.

Submissions for the Access 2011 conference are now closed.

Thanks for your interest!
