We really appreciate all of the support from our sponsors to make this Summit happen. If you would like to join us in supporting this Summit, we have many ways in which you could help us. This includes support to fund students and our speakers to attend the Summit, as well as helping us with catering costs for breaks and our reception. We have opportunities for vendors who want to share information with the participants and we would appreciate any other help underwriting the costs of this event. We feel it is important for Canadian Librarians to work together to explore this new world of linked data together. Thanks for your help in making this Summit possible!
