This is a message from Ami Brinkley's email of March 12 2014:
Hi everyone,
In case you missed our announcement in this week's Learning Revolution newsletter, this is a reminder that the call for keynote nominations for Library 2.014 is currently open!
We're excited to be gearing up for the fourth annual Library 2.014 conference on October 8th and 9th. Thanks to input from information professionals worldwide, the lineup of keynote presenters during the past Library 2.0 virtual conferences has been phenomenal. We enthusiastically invite you to nominate dynamic speakers who will lead the global conversation about the future of libraries during the Library 2.014 Worldwide Virtual Conference.
This is your chance to help shape this open online conference! Fill out this form to submit your nomination by March 31st.
Thanks so much!

Meeting Librarians in Istanbul

January 2014:
Follett offered workshops in different areas of Middle East. Larry Gilbert and Wendy Gutenkauf led workshops in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates; Rabat, Morocco; Cairo, Egypt; Istanbul, Turkey and Doha, Qatar.

About 30 librarians came to Robert College, Istanbul, Turkey, to sharpen their skills on Library Online Catalog Destiny with Larry.
Librarians from International schools in Turkey shared their experiences in teaching library skills, appreciation of literature and authors and creativity on the following day.

I thought you would be interested to see what was done in Turkey and posted some of the presentations here so you can view them.
If you had a chance to attend Follett's workshops in other places this winter, feel free to share your experience via Comment and by Editing the page.
