Big Talk for Small Libraries is aimed at librarians from small libraries, the smaller the better! Each speaker is from a small library or directly works with small libraries. Everyone is welcome to register and attend, regardless your library’s size. But, if your library serves a few thousand people, or a few hundred, this is the day for you.
You are welcome to watch as an individual or to host a group viewing of the conference. If several staff members from the same library want to attend, you can just register for one seat and have staff members view/listen together via one workstation.
You can also host a viewing party this same way and invite staff from other libraries. For any group viewings, if you know who will be there, you can list your Additional Attendees on your one registration or you can send us a list after the event.
