2010 Conference Proceedings

Every day there are news stories on libraries. The stories are usually focused on collections, buildings, and emerging technologies, and rarely on the people that make libraries. Libraries have amazing collections because library people select, process, and promote all sorts of materials with an eye to the future. Libraries have award winning buildings because library people help design and renovate them to meet both known and anticipated user needs. Libraries are at the forefront of technology because library people are risk takers and see how technology can transform processes and projects.

The conference theme, People Make Libraries: Digging into Our Past and Polishing Our Present to Transform Our Future, was intended to highlight current research and practice that is transforming academic and research libraries, and to facilitate the sharing of valuable knowledge, practices, and experiences. We invite you to explore the first publication of the CARL conference proceedings — 2010 CARL Proceedings.
