New England Science Bootcamp for Librarians: FREE Virtual Conference June 11

The organizers of the New England Science Bootcamp for Librarians have confirmed that this virtual conference is FREE and open to ALL library professionals (not limited to those in the New England area). I have seen these announcements in the past, and wished I could attend in person, so I'm thrilled to see it offered online.  

Depending on the final speakers, the tentative topic areas could be relevant for hospitals.

We are pleased to announce that New England Science Bootcamp for Librarians will host a FREE virtual conference on June 11, 2020, from 9am – 4pm.

 Topics MAY include, depending on speaker availability:
  • Vaccine research & manufacture
  • Virology
  • Making Health Devices in non-industrial settings
  • IRB and human subjects research  in the shifting landscape

Tentative Schedule
  • 9-10am     Session A
  • 10:15-10:45     Interstitial - Front Lines Stories
  • 11-12         Session B
  • 12-1         Lunch
  • 1-2         Session C
  • 2:15-2:45     Interstitial - Front Lines Stories
  • 3-4         Session D

The schedule of topics will be finalized and sent to all registrants soon.

This conference will run throughout the day, with access via a single link for the whole day that attendees will receive after registering. You may tune in as you have time or for the topics that interest you the most. More information and a detailed schedule will be available closer to the date of the event. Please register to get the most updated information sent to you.

We look forward to seeing you online for a fun and informative conference!
