Are you proud of the work that you did last year? Do you know things you want to share? Do you have a great idea? Are you able to teach your colleagues something?

These were the questions we asked our ELAG attendees for several years to kindly invite them to join the oldest library tech conference in Europe (starting 1979). Having done this for over forty  years, never could we have imagined that 2020 would be that much different from all other years. We would have been in lovely, beautiful Riga in 2020 with a great programme to share with the world. 

Alas, things turned out to be different than we hoped to be. A good-old fashioned ELAG conference with an official and unofficial program needs to wait for one more year when we are invited again to Riga. However, this won’t stop us from saying hello to you all and to listen to what you have been up to all these months. The ELAG programme committee and the Riga organisers are planning to organise an online Mini-ELAG conference with short lightning talks in October 2020 to show we are all still here and planning to do the things we love to do: sharing our pet library projects and information with the world.

Therefore we will ask you once again: Are you proud of the work that you did last year? Do you know things you want to share? Do you have a great idea? Are you able to teach your colleagues something? Yes! Then join our online Mini-ELAG conference! We will use Microsoft Teams, each speaker will get a 5 minute or a 10 minute slot for  lightning talk presentation.

Please send in your proposal here https://forms.gle/wigoNEsAD5m7k2K17

Later this summer we will send out the contact details and programme. We can’t wait to see you all again!
