Save the Date for the Core Forum in Salt Lake City

Join Your Colleagues at the Core Forum this October in Salt Lake City!

Got Zoom fatigue, but want to connect with your colleagues? We’re going to Salt Lake City, Utah for the Core Forum October 13-15, 2022, and we invite you to join us.

 Core Forum will provide an opportunity to reconnect with fellow colleagues and make new connections while celebrating the interconnected library work Core members share. The Forum will feature a welcome reception on Thursday night, keynote presentation, 16+ concurrent sessions, exhibits, and poster sessions. Presentations will cover various hot topics and innovative content for metadata and collections, buildings and operations, leadership and management, access and equity, and technology.

Participants from diverse areas of librarianship will enjoy two days of presentations, interactive panel discussions, and activities both thought-provoking and highly relevant to their current and future career paths. The Forum will engage the collective expertise of presenters and participants, facilitating enriching conversations, and learning opportunities. Everyone, including non-Core members, are encouraged to register and bring questions, share their experiences, and perspectives to the event.

Registration opens in June. Check the Core Forum website for program announcements and join the mailing list for ongoing Forum updates.
