Geared towards librarians, archivists, and library staff at academic libraries, The Collective brings together next-generation practitioners who wish to learn from and collaborate with one another.
A hybrid of the best of what conferences and “unconferences” have to offer,
The Collective limits event overlap and emphasizes thoughtful, in-depth discussion and workshops over lecture-style presentations.
Born out of frustration by the lack of tangible skills and takeaways at many conferences,
The Collective is designed as a low-cost, high-impact gathering to encourage collaboration and sharing among practicing librarians creating innovative work.
