The Meeting will take place in Florence on 10 and 11 February 2015. The theme for this year's Meeting is The Art of Invention: Culture, Technology and User Engagement in the Digital Age. In 2014 the Meeting was in Cape Town and achieved its biggest ever attendance, with member libraries who enjoyed the inspiring program and the unique international networking opportunity the event brought. The 2015 Meeting promises the same.</P> <P align=left>The opening keynote next year is David Weinberger. David is a Senior Researcher at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet &amp; Society and bestselling co-author of The ClueTrain Manifesto. He will be talking to the international audience of library, archive and museum leaders about Reinventing Invention, calling on them to embrace new ideas of the future. In the introduction to his session he asks libraries to face basic tensions between their traditional strengths and the new shape of invention, including the role of privacy, the need to anticipate users needs and the role of experts in the networked age.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1 class=headerline align=left>Sabinet Annual Regional Projects: call for proposals</H1> <P align=left>The Sabinet Chairperson's Fund undertakes a number of ad-hoc projects in partnership with Tshwane Community Library and Information Services.
