Registration FAQ
I tried to register last year but got shut out.  How can I make sure to get in next year?
The conference does fill very quickly–in a couple of hours last year.  2017 registration date is Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016, at noon (Central Time).  Watch for the latest information via our Twitter or Facebook accounts or here.  Submit a proposal!  If accepted, you not only have a guaranteed spot at the conference, but also save money on registration.
Will there be a waiting list if I miss out on registration day?
Yes, we plan to maintain the list as long as needed to fill out the conference.  We often have cancellations, so please use the waiting list if you miss out at first.

I registered online – what is the deadline for submitting the registration fee payment?

We encourage credit card payment via our secure payment site. You may also pay by check (made out to Macalester College) or using funds available via MINITEX if your institution has an active account. Payments made by check should be mailed within 10 days of registration, and must be received no later than February 15, 2017.  MINITEX will confirm that you have sufficient funds on account and will remit payment to the conference on your behalf by the payment deadline. If payment has not been received by February 15th, your registration will be canceled.

What is the mailing address for sending conference registration payment?

Those conference participants who choose to pay registration fees by check can mail the full two-day conference or single day registration fees to the following address:

Library Technology Conference
Attn: Jacki Betsworth
Macalester College
1600 Grand Avenue
St. Paul, MN 55105

Check payments must be received by February 15th or registration will be canceled.

Is it possible to get a refund of conference registration fee if I am unable to attend?

A full refund of the conference registration fee is available to individuals who find themselves unable to attend if the refund request is received in writing (email to betsworth@macalester.edu is acceptable) no later than February 28, 2017. Refund requests received in writing after February 28th but on or before March 7th will receive a refund of registration fees minus a $35 processing fee. No refund is available after March 7th.

If I am unable to attend, can I transfer my registration to a co-worker?

If you have registered and then find yourself unable to attend, you can arrange to have a co-worker attend in your place if these arrangements are made no later than March 14th. To arrange for this accommodation, please email libtechconference@macalester.edu. We are not able to split full registrations between two attendees.

If I have a registration question, whom should I contact?
