This event is being planned by library staff from across the country and some very creative folks. It was an idea started by folks at GA Tech library and they are working hard on planning it. I'm serving on the program planning committee and will post updates on the conference as we get moving.
Here's the call for proposals:
On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to submit a proposal for the Access Services Conference 2009, “Unlocking the 21st Century Library”. This year's event will be held at Georgia Tech Global Learning Center in Atlanta, GA from November 11-13, 2009.
The Access Services Conference is an opportunity for individuals working in all areas of Access Service in libraries to gather information and communicate with other professionals about Circulation, Reserves, Interlibrary Loan, Student Worker Management, Security, Stacks Maintenance, and other topics of interest.
