JOIN US FOR THE 2015 CONFERENCE
"PUBLIC LIBRARIES: INVEST & ENGAGE"
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1, 2015
9:00 am-7:30 pm
ISLOC has a new name and a new date! Returning for its 8th year, the formerly named "ISLOC" (Iowa Small Libraries Online Conference) unveils itself as ILOC—Innovative Libraries Online Conference. Along with its new name, the conference has a new date: April 1, 2015. Nope, that’s not an April Fools’ Day joke, it’s true! Protect your calendars now and plan to spend the day with us as we focus on the theme "Public Libraries: Invest & Engage."
ILOC will still be entirely online, entirely free, and worthy of several c.e. credits throughout the day. A sneak peek at the emerging 2015 event reveals these highlights:
- Opening keynote speaker Nancy Kranich; Ms. Kranich is ALA past president, current librarian/professor at Rutgers University School of Communications & Information, and Founder & Chair of the ALA Center for Civic Life Advisory Committee
- Expansion of ideas presented at Town Meetings 2014
- Multiple breakout sessions with topics suitable for staff from all sizes of Iowa libraries
- Bigger exhibit hall, as well as more time during the day to visit the exhibits or simply to discuss the sessions you attend with co-workers and trustees
- An evening keynote session developed especially for library boards, featuring Iowa’s new State Librarian Michael Scott.
