Indeed, Mr. DeMille, GOLD and GALILEO are READY for their Close-up! - ATHENS IN AUGUST 2007

Headline: Not-To-Be Missed Conference Event of the Season Approaches

It's hot! It's as sizzling as Georgia in the summertime - And it's time is now!

It's the 18th Annual GOLD/GALILEO Users Group Conference:

Library Collaboration 2.0: It's All About the Joy of Use!

Susan Lemme, Chair of the 2007 GOLD/GALILEO Users Group Advisory Committee, says "This year's conference is the best deal going for continuing education, keeping current on the changing world of information services and delivery, and networking with colleagues."

Friday, August 3rd in Athens is still a month away, but already the anticipation is mounting. This conference will make a difference in the way you manage Web 2.0 networking innovations and the library partnerships you have in place to support them. Be there to actively listen to the information seekers that are the voices behind this new digital lifestyle and learn new "real-world" ways to harness these tools and develop a Library 2.0 collaborative style of your own.

Georgia Libraries can actively engage in, evolve through and enjoy this process by going directly to their users. Learn to creatively respond to their ever-evolving needs, build new audiences and have fun along the way. All levels of staff from all types of Georgia Libraries can be part of this "marquee" experience. Be there and be treated by GOLD and GALILEO to a day that really is all about the Joy of Use.
