This is a reminder that the deadline is fast approaching for the call for presentations for the European Library Automation Group (ELAG) Conference, 22 – 24 April, 2009, Bratislava, Slovakia. 

Theme : 	New tools of the trade 
		Web 2.0, social networking applications, blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, facetted
		searching, semantic linking and digital documents are just some of the new
		developments that are rapidly changing the systems environment in libraries 
		and what users expect from the systems that they use. To respond to these
		challenges, systems librarians and developers need to "re-tool": they need 
		to discover and master new ways of developing and applying informatics to solve
		information problems. The ELAG 2009 Conference is calling for presentations 
		on new tools including:
		- innovative software, applications and environments
		- emerging formats, protocols and standards
		- new ways of applying existing standards
		- new procedures and techniques
Place: 	Bratislava, Slovakia
