The Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference will be held entirely online
via the web conferencing platform Blackboard Collaborate. Join a dedicated
group of volunteers and help provide technical support, train speakers,
moderate the live sessions, and provide general assistance. Thank you in
advance for being a star volunteer
<http://www.library20.com/group/volunteer-group-library-2-012> !



Get yourself comfortable because you'll be glued to the computer screen
during this worldwide event. Presentations will be held in multiple
languages and time zones over the course of two days (three actual calendar
days when including all time zones). The conference is free to attend, and
all session links will be posted on library2012.com
<http://library2012.com/> . If your favorite session is scheduled during
work hours, consider streaming the conference at your library and inviting
employees to join the rich discussions.



As a conference partner, your organization will be exposed to an
international audience of industry leaders. You'll get a listing on
Library2012.com <http://www.library20.com/page/2-012-partners>  with a link,
logo, and a short description; and you will be provided with a "spotlight"
speaker session in the conference. Partner organizations do not have to
provide any financial assistance - all we ask is that you actively promote
the conference to your membership and network. Partners must be
non-commercial and primarily or substantively focused on libraries,
librarians, librarianship, or library programs. For more information, please
