"What’s Next in Libraries?
         Trends, Space, and Partnerships”       
January 21-23, 2015

Creating a vibrant and sustainable library ecosystem requires that librarians and libraries adapt, change, and innovate to stay relevant to users and home institutions. What are the current trends in successful academic and public libraries? How do we as professionals re-imagine library space that is flexible and attractive?  How do we develop partnerships that advance the mission of our libraries?
            These are among some of the questions that will be examined and discussed by librarians from the United States, India, and other countries who will interact during this three-day conference to build skills, learn from colleagues, and return home with practical ideas.
          In this Conference, library professionals from the University of Illinois will work with librarians from the region and from other countries to discuss how new technologies can open access to information and knowledge for library users.  The series of workshops and papers will consider how to best build on the opportunities offered by the new technologies.
            The conference format will encourage individual participants to become engaged in discussions and presentations through a variety of sessions, including lectures, posters, “lightning” talks, individual consultations, roundtable discussions and workshops.
