Spring SLRC Conference - Maryland State Library Resource Center

Spring SLRC Conference

The Spring 2023 State Library Resource Center Conference will be held on Tuesday May 30 & Wednesday May 31, 2023.

Tuesday's sessions will take place virtually on Zoom.

Wednesday's conference will take place at the Enoch Pratt Free Library's Central Library & State Library Resource Center, with an additional available session at the neighboring Library for the Blind and Print Disabled.

Sessions will focus on the concept of "creating safer spaces," and we will consider that theme from many different perspectives.

Our keynote speaker, Tommi Laitio, will discuss the concept of "conviviality" and the idea of co-existing across diference, using examples from shared community spaces such as libraries and parks. We'll also consider facilitation, community, and cooperation, with multiple sessions led by Cu McCann from BuildWith.

On May 30, you can register for a single webinar, or for multiple sessions, and you'll earn CE credit for each session attended. On May 31 the program is a full-day event.

The conference is free, and on May 31 breakfast and lunch are provided.

Zoom invitations to the May 30 virtual events will be sent to registered participants the week before the conference. Where available, links to session recordings, slides, and handouts will be posted here after the conference.
