Presentations may discuss, but are not limited to, the following topics and themes:

  • Research instruction advances

  • Collections

  • Libraries and COVID-19

  • Professional development/new professionals

The mini-conference will close on October 27th with a session on professional development and/or skills for new professionals. Please use our Google form to submit lightning presentation proposals by September 7th, 2021. Accepted submissions will be notified by September 10th, 2021.
