LMI Summer 2013

Now in its sixth year, The LMI Summer Conference is a national conference focusing exclusively on current issues in library management and administration and is attended by library managers from across North America. There are two tracks each day; one in public library management and the other in academic and special library management. Year after year, library managers come together for two days of valuable networking and the sharing of new and innovative ideas in an intimate setting. The conference features over 20 excellent workshops on timely and relevant topics and three keynote speakers. Admission to all sessions and meal functions is included as part of the affordable registration fee.
