WiLSWorld is an annual library innovation and technologies forum hosted by WiLS. The conference brings together WiLS members from across Wisconsin (and beyond!) to share developments in library technology, discuss new and innovative projects and possibilities, and explore ways to collaborate within the community and beyond.

This year’s program, on July 21st and 22nd, will include a keynote address from Kelvin Watson, a showcase of our members’ library makerspaces and activities, an afternoon plenary panel on technology poised to have an impact on libraries, and a reception to kick off Wisconsin’s involvement with the Digital Public Library of America (there will be cake). Programs will educate and inspire with topics such as gaming, digitization, policy, literacy deserts, social media, library tools and applications, and more! The WiLSWorld Workshops will provide hands-on experience with developing digital collections, learning SQL, marketing and promoting your library services, and creating engagement with social media.

WiLS would like to thank the hard work of the WiLSWorld 2015 planning team for helping to put the conference together, and these generous sponsors for making it possible: UW-SLIS, EBSCO, Sage/CQ, First Business Bank, Springer, Wegner CPAs, OverDrive, Rosen, LexisNexis, Mackin, ProQuest, Infobase, FactCite, and Recorded Books.
