The official announcement for the Canadian Library Association (CLA) Emerging Technology Interest Group (ETIG)-sponsored Access Conference for 2011 went out back in November, announcing Vancouver, British Columbia, as the host. Note that the schedule has changed from its original dates to October 19-22!
I've told a number of people that the first time I attended an Access Conference was in Ottawa in 2006, about six months after I rejoined the library technology world, and it saved my sanity and my career. No joke. Since then, I've been lucky enough to attend several more Access conferences and was honoured to even be a speaker a few times. I probably won't be able to make it this year, unfortunately, but if you work in the intersections of libraries and technology and have never been before, I strongly urge you to go!
