*	"Libraries and Information Access for Differently-able Patrons: What
We Can Do to Ensure Equality", 11a.m.-12:30p.m. While “diversity” remains
critical, many libraries remain inaccessible. Financial limitations, limited
knowledge, organizational culture, social construction of disability, and
even complacency are arguable contributors to this reality. Join us for an
interactive discussion exploring accessibility’s dimensions and solutions.
*	"Extending Our Reach: Using Extension Programs to Promote Statewide
Resources", 11a.m.-12:30p.m. Though online tools such as blogs, twitter and
webinars we educate Extension staff about resources they can use out in the
field with the public along with professionally for their own research.
*	"Attracting Latinos to the Library: It's All About Relationships",
3-4:30p.m Getting Latinos into the library is not a mystery—many libraries
are successfully drawing capacity crowds to their programs and building
relationships that continue to reap benefits for the Latino community and
the library. What are they doing and how can my library do the same thing?
