Event description

Description

Dangerous Librarianship - Librarians are innately radical. They believe in free access to knowledge for any and all people. That is just DANGEROUS THINKING and we do it all the time. This year’s conference promises to focus on this librarianship on the edge. We will be looking at social justice as a function of librarianship, ways that you can get out and be more embedded in your community, new ways of managing, new concepts in training. If you want to go to a mellow conference where you can skate through the day for some easy CE credits THIS IS NOT THAT CONFERENCE. We are looking for the librarians who can dance on the edge and fight for their patrons.

The Urban Librarians Conference is the only library conference that focuses on front-line librarians working in large urban centers. We focus on practical, applied library science and really love to find new and upstart speakers who have fresh ideas to share. See you there!
