Transforming the way we meet: Planning a virtual library conference - white paper now available
Way back in 2017, WHSLA held our first online conference. It was a team effort and led to this white paper being written about the process and what we learned.
Thank you to my fellow co-authors: Jennifer Deal, Elissa Kinzelman-Vesely, Michele Matucheski, and Carrie Papa-Schold for all their hard work, proofreading skills, and good humor as we went through the long process.
