As information professionals, we’re always learning and innovating to provide exemplary service. Even so, the past year has been a shock for libraries. The situations we faced required creative changes and evolving solutions as the year unfolded, and libraries responded by assessing unmet needs, collaborating with colleagues to overcome challenges, and designing services to anticipate the unknown.  Our presenters, representing a variety of public and private institutions from across the country, will focus on the ways that libraries have adapted, improved, and innovated in response to the COVID-19 crisis or other emergency library-related situations.  Come share your experiences and join your library colleagues at the SUNYLA Midwinter Virtual Conference on February 12, 2021 (10:00am – 3:40pm EST).

Technology requirements for attendance:  Computer, internet connection, microphone/speakers (headset recommended) or telephone.  Zoom will be used for this conference and is free for use by attendees.
