SUNYLA 2018: Throw Open Our Doors: Academic Librarians Open to New Experiences, Opinions, and Viewpoints

Finger Lakes Community College

June 13-15, 2018

There has been a lot of talk about “open” lately — open educational resources, open pedagogy, open access, etc. At the SUNYLA 2018 Annual Conference, we will delve into the concept of openness through the more general terms of openly welcoming new ideas, campus partners, materials, and strategies into our libraries. Please join us at Finger Lakes Community College on June 13-15, 2018, as we explore how our academic libraries are pushing the boundaries beyond books and databases and opening new territory both within and beyond our walls.

See the program and scheduled sessions.
