2020 WLA Academic Library Conference

On March 20, 2020, CLAWS will join forces with WLA's Academic Library Division to hold their first-ever conference for library workers in academic libraries. This all-day event will be held at on March 20, 2020 at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA.

When: March 20, 2020
Where: Central Washington University, Ellensburg, WA

The conference theme of "Deep Roots, New Growth" seeks to cultivate the fruit of academic library work while staying grounded in an ever-changing library environment. We find ourselves at a crossroads of new and emerging ways of accessing information in academic libraries and continuously challenging the library image on campus, while also staying connected to the bedrock principles of libraries. How do we remain responsive to a changing student population, as well as increasing focus on diversity and inclusion? How can we grow with the culture of our campus patrons and rise to meet the future needs of teaching and learning?
