Do you love exploring new ideas? Always secretly wished you knew more about how to create an app? Wonder what the next wave of library innovation might be?
If you answered yes, then Innovation in Libraries 2012 is for you. The event will happen after LITA Forum concludes on Oct. 7, and will continue through the morning of Oct. 8. Sponsored by OCLC and held at the Columbus Metropolitan Library Main Library, Innovation in Libraries 2012 is your chance to hear from experts and colleagues, and contribute your ideas. Library innovation of all flavors will be on tap; you are invited.

3 Library integration with nonlibrary functions
4 Nonlibrary apps and “what’s out there”
