Libraries Act, Respond, Transform: The A.R.T. of Empowerment
October 27, 2017
Nationwide Hotel & Conference Center, Columbus OH

The conference's 28 programs and additional poster sessions and roundtable discussions will explore how academic libraries and librarians provide resources and initiate programs, partnerships, and policies that empower patrons, staff, and stakeholders while advancing equity and social justice.

Join us for a keynote address by April Hathcock, former corporate litigator-turned-scholarly communication librarian. Hathcock is an author and contributor to publications such as In the Library with the Lead Pipe as well as her personal blog, "At the Intersection." Her work on advocacy and social action has led to many appearances at library conferences and in the larger mainstream media.
