Dear UC Libraries colleagues,

The UC Libraries Forum 2021 planning committee is excited to announce that registration is now open for the UC Libraries Forum 2021 Conference!

October 26th, 2021 | Pre-conference workshops

October 27th – October 29, 2021 | Conference 

In light of the challenging times, we are coming together virtually to share our work under the theme ‘Leading with Innovation, Stronger through Collaboration’. This conference will explore the intersection of technology and service; lessons learned through the past extraordinary year, and the value of change management.

The UC Libraries Forum will serve as an opportunity for UC library colleagues to meet virtually, share, learn and find opportunities for new collaborations and projects across the UC system. Presentations and conversation will note existing collaborations and spark ideas for new ones. This forum builds on and extends the scope of UC DLFx 2018 and 2019 beyond digital initiatives to all library employees to include themes such as research data, scholarly communications, the current-COVID academic library and others.

Keynote speaker: Robert Nelson of the Mapping Inequality, Redlining In New Deal America Project.
