We invite you to submit a proposal for a 20-minute talk (this includes time for questions) on how your staff, your libraries and/or your constituents engage with information.  What new program, service or space are you and your library providing to your user community?  What new technologies or tools are you using to improve how you, your library, or your users get things done?  Consider submitting your own proposal or encouraging a colleague to submit a proposal.

Looking forward to seeing all of you in Edmonton in November.
