We are thrilled with the overwhelming response for MDLS20!

We are aware that many Midwestern data professionals were unable to register, so we have added more registration tickets. PLEASE NOTE: These tickets are for Midwestern United States data professionals only. If there are still seats available prior to the Conference, we will extend the registration again to the rest of the US and internationally.

Registration is free for all attendees. To register, please go here.

MDLS20 will take place virtually during the afternoons of October 14-16 (Wednesday-Friday). The agenda can be seen on our website, and the meeting link will be shared with registrants closer to the Conference dates. Registration is capped. We anticipate that spots will fill up quickly.

Please contact us at mwdatalibsym@gmail.com, or on Twitter at @MW_DataLibSym, if you have any questions about registration or other event details.

The early bird rate deadline for the 2020 ILA Virtual Conference is Monday, September 21. Don’t pay more if you don’t have to, so register today to secure the early-bird rate.

This year’s theme, “Many Libraries, One State: We ARE ILA”, is more important than it has ever been. In this trying time, it is reassuring to know that from large university libraries to one-person special libraries and all the libraries in between, we are strong, we are resilient, and we are united. Conference sessions include topics on advocacy, budget and finance, career advice, emerging technologies, equity, diversity and inclusion, marketing, open access, youth services and more! The Conference will also feature an array of speakers with diverse backgrounds, a virtual marketplace where attendees can meet with exhibitors, virtual networking opportunities, and poster sessions.

Don’t pay more, register today! To do so, please go here.

PLEASE NOTE: You can register to attend the conference now at the early bird rate and select the pay later option. If you have any questions about conference registration, e-mail ila@ila.org.

Due to the ongoing impact of COVID19, the next STELLA Unconference will take place virtually, as a one-day event on Friday, October 9. Sessions are planned from 10:00 to 5:00 PM CDT, though timing may still change slightly.  Registered attendees will be able to suggest topics for discussion and submit lightning talks as we get closer to the date. 

This free event welcomes current or aspiring science, technology, engineering and medical/health librarians and those interested in STEM librarianship.

Advanced registration is now open for those who have registered for the original May 2020 STELLA. Registration opened to the general public on August 10 and is capped at 200 participants.
