See what last year’s attendees had to say…
“Talking to others in the profession can ease feelings of isolation and reinventing the wheel. Conferences like these offer perspective and spark conversations that can lead to new ways of thinking.”
“It is the one of the few places a librarian can go to be exposed to different viewpoints (whether you agree or disagree), interact with peers, experience new technologies and visit with authors across a wide spectrum of topics.”
