Saskatchewan Libraries Conference
Mark your calendar! The 2024 Saskatchewan Libraries Conference will take place May 1-3, 2024 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Regina, SK.
The Saskatchewan Libraries Conference is an annual event that provides the premier professional development opportunity for anyone working in library and information services in Saskatchewan.
The 2023 Saskatchewan Libraries Conference took place at the Saskatoon Inn & Conference Centre on May 3-5, 2023 and was a huge success! Nearly 150 delegates took in a wide variety of sessions, with topics ranging from family literacy to reconciliation to increasing your library’s accessibility.
2024 Conference Call for Session Proposals
SLA is currently accepting session proposals for the 2024 Saskatchewan Libraries Conference. Are you knowledgeable in an area that your library and information services colleagues are always asking you about? Do you know how to run a great program? Have you found a solution to a unique library problem? We want to hear your expertise!
The theme for the 2024 conference is “Libraries Create Community,” inviting us to explore the many ways that libraries build, enhance, and empower their communities. Some of the ways that the SLA Conference Program Committee sees libraries creating community are:
- Developing library collections or services that reflect and support our province’s diverse communities;
- Creating relevant communities of practice for library workers;
- Library students sharing research projects with the broader library community;
- Providing instruction to create information-literate citizens in our communities; and
- Gathering community in reconciliation and decolonization initiatives.
The deadline to submit a session proposal is Nov. 17, 2023. All session proposals are adjudicated by the SLA Conference Program Committee. All applicants will be informed of the outcome of their proposal by the end of January 2023. All conference sessions will be held in-person at the conference venue. Submissions from within Saskatchewan and outside the province are welcome.
