We are excited to announce that registration is now open for the 13th Annual Connecticut Academic Libraries Conference, formerly titled the Connecticut Information Literacy Conference, which will be held virtually on Friday, June 9, 2023. We are expanding our scope to include all under the academic library umbrella. The conference will be $10 for attendees.
The theme of this year’s conference is: Renew, Refresh, Rethink: Inspiring Lasting Change in Academic Libraries. Institutions of higher education throughout the country may be considering their institutional environments, processes and practices with regard to rebranding, and innovation. Ideas include what’s happening now that is new and exciting in our libraries.
Our keynote speaker is Mark Aaron Polger, Coordinator of Library Outreach at the College of Staten Island, City University of New York (CUNY) and author of three books; Library Signage and Wayfinding Design: Communicating Effectively with your Users(2021), Library Marketing Basics (2019), and Engaging Diverse Learners: Teaching Strategies for Academic Librarians (co-authored with Scott Sheidlower)(2017). Polger’s research interests include library marketing, outreach, and UX (user experience) design and has written and presented on topics ranging from library marketing strategies, faculty outreach, library marketing campaigns, library jargon, and library signage.
Our additional presentations to choose from include topics such as: Gamification and Information Literacy, Library Marketing & Communications Strategies, Refreshing Library Spaces, to name a few. To check out our full list of presentations, click here.
