This year's conference will highlight ways that public libraries are making a difference in their communities by creating online patron experiences that are diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible. However, true impact doesn't stop there. While it's essential to qualitatively acknowledge community benefits, more and more libraries want to measure results by looking at data and metrics—and use their findings to drive decisions and strategies. Together, conference speakers and attendees will explore ways to create welcoming online experiences while also gauging the efficacy of their activities, and sharing their measurable results with their communities, boards, and cities.
While all types of libraries have similarities, many challenges, goals, and topics are unique to public libraries, and BiblioCon is here to cover them.
Learn from public library staff and leaders that are experts in creating unforgettable, fresh, and engaging experiences for patrons and library staff.
Stick to one track or hop around to learn the latest marketing and strategy tips, public service online ideas, and pointers on how to best use the BiblioCommons suite of products and services.
Magic happens when we come together! Make new connections with other public library staff who share the same passions you do.
BiblioCon attendees include library directors, web managers and content developers, marketing and communications directors and staff, IT directors and staff, ILS managers, public service staff, readers' advisory experts, and BiblioCommons team members.
