Libraries Charting the Course Across the Waters

Libraries are riding a wave of broad cultural and environmental changes: diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, remote work, virtual learning, expansion of open access, artificial intelligence, the impacts of pandemic/endemic Covid-19, sea level rise, and climate change are felt by our libraries every day. 

Have you found new ways to bring students and researchers back to the library in-person? What are your strategies to create a more inclusive and welcoming work environment? Are you looking for ways to enhance the accessibility and usability of your collections and resources? How is your library navigating these waves of change? Changes create opportunities for us to try new ways of working, provide time to reset priorities, and to reexamine best practices. The 2024 SAIL/Cyamus Joint Annual Conference brings together people sharing ideas, experiences, and insights from across the continent -- East, West, North, and South. Share the best practices and services that make your library and library users successful.

We look forward to seeing you!
