With GLC less than a week away, we hope that everyone is excited for the great presentations and networking opportunities that are coming your way. This year’s theme is Enduring and Evolving, with a focus on the ways your library systems, processes, and people have changed and made it through the past year.
The conference will be fully virtual and available via Whova, the same app utilized last year.
To register, access the link here. GLA members can register for $45, students for $15, and non-GLA members for $85. Registration closes on October 4!
The schedule is jam-packed! Some topics include virtual collaboration and programming, digitization, DEI initiatives, and much more. Additional features GLA attendees may find appealing are the Pat Carterette Virtual Run/Walk 5K, live sessions featuring the scholarship raffle, keynotes, and the awards ceremony—just to name a few!
We hope to “see” you there!
