The Special, Health and Law libraries conferences provide a dynamic forum for the exchange of ideas, continuing professional development, and networking with colleagues and vendors.
The conference theme, Rivers of knowledge, is set to look at the multifaceted information sources that we deal with, and to look at the technology changes that enable information storage, retrieval and delivery.
