OLA Super Conference

Tomorrow thousands of Librarians from across Ontario will start to descend on Toronto for the annual Ontario Library Association Super Conference. The conference runs from February 1 - 4 and is held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Library staff from all forms of libraries, public, private, school, consulting firms) will be attending sessions on readers advisory, collection development, social media, technology in the library, management, literacy... the list goes on and on - to learn new things and bring the ideas back to their libraries for implementation.   
This year SPL is very proud to say that a our staff will be putting on three different sessions.
  • Anne Marie Heckman and  Melanie Kindrachuk will be presenting a session called "Reading for the Health of It"
  • Wendy Hicks will be presenting on "Top Ten Management Tips (apologies to David Letterman)"
  • Sam Coghlan will be presenting on "Library Planning for a Creative City"

I know I'm quite excited about this year's conference. The theme is "Innovation: Imagine, Innovate, Impact". Expect library staff to come back inspired about the future of libraries!  If you want to follow the Super Conference on Twitter, follow #sc12.
