Presented by Emily Drabinski, President of the American Library Association (ALA).

Everyone is welcome.

Register now. Registration is not required to attend but it helps us track our numbers!

Librarians are experts at the pivot. We move between print indexes, CD-ROMS, and relational databases with ease, leaping big technology shifts in a single bound. We connect students to reading materials of all kinds, create sanctuary for our most vulnerable students, all while advocating for ourselves and our communities inside and outside the building. But we can’t do it alone! Join American Library Association President Emily Drabinski for a discussion of the good work libraries do, the support we need to keep it going, and strategies for staying nimble as we fight for the world we want.

This event is organized as the keynote lecture for the FIMS Graduate Student Conference, but it is open to the public and all are welcome.

Sponsored by FIMS, the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, the FIMS Grad Library and Western Libraries.
