The conference includes a one-day Indigenous Forum followed by a day of sessions on a wide range of topics including: Governance of Non-Profit Organizations, Accessibility, Customer Service, School Librarianship, Data Analysis and Intellectual Freedom.
A Pre-Conference session is also offered in the afternoon of May 6 at the Dr. John Archer Library, University of Regina, 3737 Wascana Parkway, Regina. The theme for the Pre-Conference is equity, inclusion and empathy in libraries. The session will explore what happens when library values like freedom of expression come in conflict with other values such as inclusion and building community as has happened in libraries in a number of cities across the country. How do libraries and library staff support minority groups and help them see themselves represented in our libraries when they may see our professional norms or values coming in conflict with inclusion?
