Description:
Libraries are at yet another crossroads! Library programs and services have never been so varied nor our audiences so large! At the same time, our resources are under extraordinary pressure from a particularly difficult economy and the competition emerging everywhere. Controlling the threats and making the most of the opportunities is what our Conference is all about.

This is a conference of strategies, of practical ideas, of planning, of growth and of imagination. The program offers you the latest magic in technological innovation and the ancient and timeless magic of the puppet theatre- a blend that contains the best of our past and the promise of our future. But even the best of our past must be reconceptualized for our future. A very special puppet theatre that will eventually find its way into an Ontario library is being designed for us by Paul Bolland, Senior Architect for the Kirkland Partnership. We are using this puppet theatre as a paradigm of each of our situations. It symbolizes the box that is the school. public, college, university or special library in which we work. When we open the box, we will only succeed if our audience finds the intellectual. cultural and emotional resources it needs to cope and prosper in the 1990s and beyond. The OLA's 90th Annual Conference puts expert speakers and exciting innovation centre stage. In over ninety sessions and some 115 events, we will analyze what we do, suggest new directions and provide new skills. We will look at these essential activities in terms of "Libraries Advance Ontario", OLA's new marketing initiative for the libraries of Ontario. We invite you to bring your ideas into this extraordinary special program and to share them with members of the legislature, of the press and of the public who will be our guests. We are all on stage. Together we can make a lasting impression and direct our future . Come work with us, your colleagues, in what again will be Canada's biggest and most exhilarating library educational event.
