Here is the schedule:

·         *Tuesday March 24, 9:30 a.m. MST*

*E**verything You Learned in Library School is Wrong*

*David Lankes, Syracuse University, School of Information Studies,
Syracuse, New York.  Professor and Dean’s Scholar on New Librarianship*
We all know that Libraries are Good and Necessary Things and Libraries
Collect, Organize, and Provide Access to Information. That's what we were
taught in library school right? Except of course, they don't. Libraries
don't do anything except exert gravity and shield you from the rain. It is
librarians and the people in the library that makes the world a better
place. Collections are just tools, like buildings, and books, and
databases, and 3D printers. This keynote will focus on how librarians are
radical positive change agents that make communities better.

·         *Tuesday March 24, 1:30 p.m. MST*

*Inspired Outreach Inspired*

*John Emerson, an activist, graphic designer, writer, and programmer based
in New York City creator of  http://backspace.com/notes

How do you engage the hearts and minds of your audience? Connect and
empower with outreach that makes people say "Aha!" and "Let's do it!"

·         *Wednesday, March 25, 9:00 am M**ST*

*                FLATLAND:  A Statistical Romance of Many Dimensions.*

                 *Eli Neiburger, Associate Director, IT and Production, Ann
Arbor District*

In which our Hero, A. Librarian, must search for scalars amidst an
increasingly flat landscape, with which to earn the favor of capricious
higher-dimensional beings, before her entire world collapses to a single
ultradense font of information, only to find that the only dimension that
truly matters is     LOVE.

·         *Wednesday, March 25, 1:30 p.m. MST*

*“Perspectives and Advice on Accessibility and Universal Design”*

*Sina Bahram, an accessibility consultant, researcher, and entrepreneur*

Join Sina Bahram as he walks through the concepts of accessibility and
universal design. These core principles are fundamental to understanding
how to be relevant in the 21st century to all audiences regardless of
physical or cognitive ability. Through exploring a narrative about
technology, access to information and the physical world, and practical
tips and tricks about steps any of us can take, Sina will both motivate and
show us how to augment our content, interactions, and thinking to become
more inclusive.

·         *Thursday, March 26, 9:00 a.m. MST*

                *“**Nothing Is Different But Everything Has Changed:
Observations and Insights From 10 Years on               the Road.”*

                *David Bendekovic,* *President, The B. A. David Company,
Syracuse, New York  *

Your ability to reach your goals has as much to do with how you choose to
see the world as it does with your level of education and intelligence.
This keynote will give you the keys to thinking in a more powerful way
about yourself, the people around you, and the work you want to get done.
What You Do Makes A Difference. You Just Have To Figure Out What Kind Of
Difference You Want To Make.
