The registration deadline is quickly approaching for our Thursday, February 13, 2020, conference, Work Smarter, Not Harder: Innovating Technical Services Workflows. Registration closes on Monday, February 10 at 8:00 AM Central Time.

Are you a "jack-of-all-trades" librarian who wants to spend less time ordering books and more time on the reference desk? Is your busy technical services department looking for ways to automate everyday processes such as editing batches of MARC records from vendors? Do you want to process new items faster to get them into your patrons' hands sooner? Do you simply find yourself wondering, "Is there an easier way to do this?" about any of your library's technical services work?

Library staff members spend a lot of time making sure patrons can access their resources, both physical and electronic, and finding ways to improve these workflows is important.

Join us on February 13, 2020 for Work Smarter, Not Harder: Innovating Technical Services Workflows. This Amigos Library Services online conference will explore ways to make everyone's life easier when it comes to ordering, processing, cataloging, and weeding our libraries' resources.


We’ve got a great lineup of speakers, including a keynote presentation by Terry Reese titles “Smart Cataloging: Beginning the Move from Batch Processing to Automatic Classification.”
