Apologies for cross-posting... The Access 2009 Conference clock is officially ticking down and the conference team is working hard to bring you the best program and social events possible. The dates of the "best little library tech conference anywhere" are Thursday Oct 1 - Saturday October 3, with the Hackfest taking place September 30. You can get more information and register today at: http://vre.upei.ca/access2009 We are working hard on the program, but have finished the important bits: Cory Doctorow is our keynote (and a participant at the Hackfest) and the social events will be awesome! The session details will be filled in over the coming weeks, but we have a great line-up in store. We would encourage people who want to reserve a spot to register and book you hotels as soon as possible. The summer and fall are beautiful on PEI and full of incredible events (such as Fall Flavours - http://www.fallflavours.ca/) so the hotels book up quickly. We have reserved a bank of rooms in the hotels closest to the conference venue but you still need to book soon, as the room blocks will expire in August for most. You might even want to book an extra day or 2 on either side of the Conference to make the most of your stay - we promise you won't regret it... See you in Charlottetown!
