Roy Tennant to present opening keynote at Access 2013 in St. John's Newfoundland on 24 September
Access 2013 is Canada's premier library technology conference bringing librarians, technicians, developers, programmers, and managers together to discuss cutting-edge library technologies. It takes place in St. John's Newfoundland, 23-26 September 2013, and features in-depth analyses, panel discussions, lightning talks and a hackfest, as well as networking and social events.
In this presentation, Roy will describe how the last twenty years have seen incredible changes in libraries, society, and ourselves. Where were we in 1993 and how did we get where we are today? What were our successes, our failures, our laughably lame attempts to make progress? For those of you attending Access 2013 in person, Roy promises that "You'll laugh, you'll cry, you’ll want to punch your neighbor or throw things at the speaker. Try to behave yourself as we take a rollicking look back at where we've come from and discover how on earth we made it this far alive."
