Learning, Libraries & Technology 2009 is a learning and networking opportunity from the University System of Ohio with content of interest to everyone involved in Ohio education, including those from colleges and universities of all sizes, independent colleges, workforce development centers and high schools. Held at the Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio, the pre-conference Workshops will be on March 1, 2009 followed by the main conference on March 2-3, 2009.

Learning, Libraries & Technology 2009 Conference will be the tenth anniversary of Ohio’s premier higher education conference, previously known as the Ohio Digital Commons for Education Conference. Although the name might have changed, this year’s conference will deliver all the same great professional development and networking opportunities from past conferences, including keynote sessions, vendor exhibits and technology demonstrations. In order to attract as many people as possible to attend this special 10th anniversary conference, organizers are reducing conference fees to just $195 ($95 for students) for two-day registrations, and $95 ($55 for students) for one-day registrations.
