International Relations Round Table is the only membership organization within the American Library Association (ALA) that focuses exclusively on international activities and interests. The International Relations Round Table (IRRT) Pre-Conference, designed specifically for international librarians at the ALA Annual Conference concentrates on the current state of librarianship in the United States, advocacy, literacy, information technologies and other issues impacting libraries and librarians globally. With a theme of “Web 2.0 and Mobile Technology – Building Global Connections,” this year’s program invited five panelists to talk about how their organization is applying Web 2.0, social networking tools and mobile technology in enhancing services, exposing resources, expanding outreach, and enriching the life of diverse customers in today’s digital environment. June 25 brought together more than 70 library professionals from around the world to participate in a thought-provocative presentation and panel discussion at ALA’s IRRT Annual Preconference in Washington, DC.
