About Lake Superior Libraries Symposium
The Lake Superior Libraries Symposium (LSLS) is a conference developed by library staff and technologists from Northwestern Wisconsin and Northeastern Minnesota.
This year’s theme, Beyond Neutral, invites attendees to challenge the traditional stance of libraries as neutral spaces. In the current political climate, how do we navigate our institutional restrictions while upholding our professional values? At LSLS17, we will look outward to connect with our community, and inward to reflect on ourselves and our profession.

About the LSLS Pre-Conference Workshop
Libraries Serving Native Communities: Collaborations and Support with Dr. Loriene Roy
Let’s spend a half-day discussing and considering how libraries serve members of tribal communities. We’ll consider indigenous ways of knowing and move into discussing how to make connections with our Native library users and potential users. We’ll consider examples of services and consider how to maintain connections. We’ll reflect on our motives for providing services. And we’ll close with ideas of resources for continuing to learn about tribal communities.
