oops-my-badIf you pre-registered Big Talk From Small Libraries 2015 you should have received an e-mail with the login instructions by now. It seems however, that the link to the day’s schedule at the beginning of the e-mail was incorrect. The correct URL for this year’s schedule is http://nlcblogs.nebraska.gov/bigtalk/schedule/ and can be found via the Schedule link at the top of this page.

Sorry about that.

If you have not yet received the login instructions, they will be posted here later today.

Pre-registration will close tonight at midnight, central time so if you think you might have the time to attend even just one session, please register now. Pre-registration will ensure that you receive the login information for the conference via e-mail. If you don’t pre-register, you can still attend via the login instructions that will be posted on the conference site, but we’d really like the heads-up that you’re planning on attending.
