Just register online and you’re ready to go! Discounts are available for non-salaried, retired, students, and groups from the same institution.
We’re also still looking for super short shout-out style videos to welcome everyone to the conference. If you’ve ever seen the beginning of the Today Show or watched political conventions last summer, you’ll know exactly what we’re looking for. It’s a quick video of you (and your optional friends/colleagues/family/pets) saying, “Hello from [fill in with your library/campus/home office/city/state/country]!” After all, this is your conference and a chance to showcase your library, campus, hometown, or home office! It’s easy to enter, just send us your short video by March 12 and you’ll be entered to win.
